Oil drum disposal


We can provide a cost-saving approach to the removal and disposal of electrical waste as we are a licensed waste carrier approved by the UK Environment Agency. The waste is transferred to our depots for strip-down into separate waste streams or to approved WEEE recycling centers or specialist disposal companies in the case of batteries.

UPS are generally stripped down in our workshop once collected. Metals and plastics are recycled, including electrical cabling, capacitors and fans. PCBs and components are disposed of by specialist recycling companies according to national guidelines covering WEEE and RoHS.


We have many years of experience in the decommissioning, removal and disposal of generators parts and fluids. This can include oil and coolant change, fuel, battery replacements and even the generator itself. Whether its installed in a basement or on a roof, we have the specialist skills and equipment to remove the generator and safely dispose of it in accordance with legislation.


Batteries are the major consumable item within an uninterruptible power supply or DC standby power systems. Most batteries have either a 5 or 10-year design life and typically require replacement (and disposal) within years 4 and 7 respectively. During the life of a UPS system one to two battery changes are common and most occur as part of preventative maintenance routines. Once the batteries are removed from site, they are sent to specialist battery companies who can strip down the batteries into their separate components of plastic cases, metal plates and acidic electrolyte, for recycling.
