Corrosive Waste

Corrosive wastes can present a significant challenge when it comes to transportation and disposal. Corrosive hazardous waste is broadly defined as an aqueous solution. For example, strong acids and strong alkaline degreasers with a pH of 2, pH of 12.5 and above, or liquids capable of corroding steel, such as storage tanks or drums at a certain rate per year. Also, Department of Transportation (DOT) corrosives corrode steel, aluminum, and skin at certain rates. Their chemical incompatibilities mean they must be segregated or distanced from other chemicals such as oxidizers during transport.

Hazardous wastes are classified as “Hazardous Materials” so transport must be done by licensed and permitted hazmat drivers and vehicles. Alongside this, the EPA’s RCRA regulations classify them as “Hazardous Waste” when they are sent for disposal. This means they’re rigorously tracked, regulated, and controlled, but so improper disposal can lead to significant fines or worse.

Here at WasteXpress, we’re able to simplify the process for you. We have the necessary permits and licenses for transporting and disposing of these corrosive wastes in accordance with all local, state, and federal regulations. We manage all different types of waste, including corrosive waste, and have also been serving small businesses and Fortune 500 companies throughout the Pacific Northwest for over 30 years.
