Industrial waste is any non-hazardous waste generated via industrial processes. This can include wastewater, construction and demolition materials and scraps generated during manufacturing as well as shipping containers, such as drums.
If industrial waste is not handled properly, it can negatively affect both the environment and human health. In addition, effective industrial waste management can reduce regulatory fees and operational costs.
Yes, companies have an obligation to effectively manage and dispose of their industrial waste. If they fail to do so, they will become liable for the damages caused through their negligence. Even in cases where the businesses win their cases, they will still lose out on legal fees and time spent defending themselves in the courts.
