Why Use A General Waste Incinerator?

Waste accumulation is an increasing problem, especially in more remote areas and some hazardous waste cannot be sent to a landfill. One solution is to incinerate trash or drugs on-site. Food, medical waste, drugs and drug-related paraphernalia can be safely reduced to a small amount of ash and then disposed of avoiding the logistics of transport to a landfill or larger off-site incinerator. Our waste incinerators have been used for a wide range of disposal including airlines burning international food waste.

Medical Waste Incineration

The incinerator is easy to operate and requires minimal training. It burns everything from medical waste to animal remains with clean emissions. Its small footprint makes it easy to fit in facilities with limited space. Its portability and simple installation offers the flexibility for relocation. Our waste incinerator can also be used to burn drugs that have been collected through take-back programs or expired evidence logs. The fire reduces the drugs to a small amount of ash and sterilizes needles for disposal.
