This includes dust, powder, and other remnants of the waste. Airborne waste can float in the air, invading surrounding areas and even compromising the health and safety of workers. They require special airborne disposal waste tactics.
Flexible waste solutions are designed to contain dust at every stage: generation, transport, and disposal. Their thick, flexible fabrics prevent airborne waste from escaping and allow for very snug fits in containers. Plus, they can be specifically designed with spouts to align with your discharge chutes to eliminate any release while loading.
High heat waste, including ash, tar, and other by-products that were produced at high temperatures, require an engineered packaging solution to protect transportation vehicles and workers from the heat.
You might be wondering how a flexible package can handle heat. All of our flexible solutions are crafted from a myriad of materials, some specifically engineered to be fire retardant and withstand extreme temperatures during capture, transport and disposal.
A flexible packaging solution could be the right fit for construction or agricultural waste, including soil that has come into contact with crops, machinery, and/or livestock.
This kind of soil could be considered hazardous, depending on its source. Fortunately, flexible containment options are created to handle potentially harmful substances with strong walls, durable fabrics, and easy-to-use zipper closures.
Gravel & Flowable Solids
You’ll need a customized packaging solution (preferably flexible) to handle rock, sand, concrete, gravel, brick, asphalt, or asphalt grindings - otherwise referred to as gravel.
Worried that a flexible container can’t handle such tough materials? Don’t be – all of our flexible options are tear-resistant and durable enough to handle rocky gravel.
This kind of industrial waste includes, but is not limited to, wood products, roofing materials, plastic pipes, wallboard material, rocks, concrete, bricks, cardboard, and metal like rebar.
All flexible demolition packaging options are created in bright white to reflect for safety purposes. They are DOT compliant, manufactured with tear-resistant fabrics to safely transport heavy-duty debris.
Single Solid Items
There are many items that could be considered “single-solids,” including plastics, leather, munitions, textiles, furniture, and even food. Flexible waste packaging allows you to take care of single solid items in different shapes and sizes.
In many cases, using a flexible container is actually easier than using a rigid one when dealing with single solids. Fabric can form to fit the item perfectly, making your job infinitely simpler.
High Moisture Content Waste
When wet wastes come together to form a “sludge” of sorts, you’ll want dewatering bags and other flexible solutions to deal with the waste. Dewatering bags are designed to act as a strainer that separates the water from the solid waste material. The filtered water can then be drained out, leaving only the solids to be disposed of.
As water is extremely heavy – and disposal costs are calculated by weight – using a flexible dewatering bag can save thousands of dollars.
Although we wouldn’t recommend using flexible containers for true liquids, they are perfectly capable of handling homogeneous solids.
