Loadhog Enters Hazardous Waste Management Container Market

Loadhog, the multi award-winning transit packaging innovator, has broken into the market of removing and transporting hazardous waste, including liquids, with a reusable container with one of the highest UN certifications on the market in this category.

The extra strong, yet lightweight, container was developed meticulously by the Sheffield-based manufacturer, utilizing its in-house improvement and test engineers, for industrial and commercial use or storage. The certification was given by an external laboratory whose harsh tests proved that the container could withstand dropping and stacking.

The container is easy to handle and available in three depths, each capable of carrying up to 45kg. Their attached lids allow vertical nesting which saves up to 10% transport costs when returning empties. The lids provide more flexibility than others in Europe for the safe storage and transport of dangerous goods, such as in recycling centers and used batteries storage.

Manufactured in hi-visibility orange polypropylene, with branding available and a permanently attached red strap, each container has a 600mm x 400mm footprint, with a choice of 310, 365 or 400mm depth.

More cost-effective than a UN certified cardboard box, the Loadhog container is reusable with an inner bag and tie, also UN certified, which can be incinerated with its contents.

The new Loadhog container is already proving popular with waste management companies across the UK and Europe and the company’s France-based distributor reports increasing demand.
