Learning what type of waste your business produces will help you get a better understanding of the type of waste management your business needs. If you aren't sure what services you could benefit from, contact the experts at Panda Environmental today!  


Even if your business does not produce more 'obvious' types of hazardous waste (such as bio-medical waste or severely toxic waste), almost all businesses produce some materials that are considered toxic waste. These common materials include: 

  • Materials from manufacturing (e.g., waste acids, contaminated sludge and chemicals)
  • Photo-finishing chemicals
  • Waste pesticides
  • Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs)
  • Motor oil
  • Unused cleaning products from homes or offices
  • Discarded batteries

Dispose of Industrial Hazardous Waste in Ontario - Compliance With The Law


In Ontario, there are laws that govern how businesses and corporations must dispose of their waste, including industrial hazardous waste.  Regulation 347 under the Environmental Protection Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. E.19 provides the rules and regulations for legal and safe disposal of waste. These regulations and laws include how businesses must handle their hazardous waste.


Businesses and companies must ensure their hazardous waste is properly disposed of in order to comply with Ontario law. If you do not follow these laws and illegally dump hazardous waste or dispose of it improperly, you may end up facing legal consequences and being charged with a crime. In many locations in Ontario, businesses are responsible for finding their own hazardous waste disposal solutions (along with weekly or bi-weekly curbside pickup of regular garbage, recycling, and compost).


With this mind, how can companies comply with the many regulations regarding not only hazardous waste, but also garbage and organic waste? Working with a professional waste management company that has the tools and equipment to safely and effectively dispose of your hazardous waste is the best way to comply with the laws. A waste management company will know all there is to know about Ontario hazardous waste laws and will ensure your business complies with each and every one!
