ORGANIZATION OF WASTE DISPOSAL FOR DISPOSAL AND RECOVERY

Our company has approvals for the collection of all types of hazardous waste (except radioactive waste and explosives) and for a large number of non-hazardous waste. We ship waste safely, meeting all legal requirements to certified and quality certified processors in Croatia or abroad.

We are the largest exporters of hazardous waste from the Republic of Croatia to EU countries. Hazardous wastes should be harmlessly collected and properly disposed of in order not to endanger human health and pollute the environment. The solution is to place hazardous waste in organized warehouses where it is handled in full control and in accordance with the highest safety standards.

  • Waste Exporter Register (IZV-079)
  • Waste Carrier Register (PRV-205)
  • Waste Management Intermediary Register (POS-099)
  • Waste Dealers Register (TRG-317)

We collect waste from industry, retail, public institutions, hospitals, small businesses, crafts and other institutions. In addition to waste collection, we provide cleaning services and at the same time take-over of generated waste.

We have 3 high capacity storage locations for hazardous and non-hazardous waste:

  • Hazardous Waste Storage – Jastrebarsko
  • Hazardous and Non-Hazardous Waste Storage – Novi Vinodolski
  • Non-hazardous Waste Storage Zagreb.

Waste is sorted according to its characteristics and location, separately collected by type and stored in prescribed conditions and properly marked containers until they are collected, treated or disposed of.

Zagreb and Rijeka branches cover commercial and operational operations throughout Croatia. Our storage facilities meet the highest safety requirements with automatic fire detection and extinguishing systems, video surveillance, closed sewage systems with built-in separators, and a 24-hour security service.
