Environmental responsibility


Our hazardous waste services involve substances that, if improperly handled, can contaminate our environment. As such, GFL’s primary concern is always the safe and environmentally-responsible management of these materials.

Hazardous waste must be characterized, profiled, packaged, and transported in accordance with strict procedures and guidelines, while disposal must be managed in properly permitted treatment, storage, and disposal facilities. The regulations which govern and affect hazardous waste are regulated by the respective municipality, province, state, or federal authorities.

GFL handles hazardous waste materials with the utmost care and compliance, in line with all applicable regulations, at our licensed transfer, storage and disposal facilities located across Canada and the United States. Our innovative solutions are supported by years of experience and expertise in driving compliance and sustainable services.
