Waste segregation signs can be used to recognise and segregate items within your waste stream management programme. There are many different signs to help identify diverse forms of waste. These signs can inform your staff of the precise handling, collection and disposal of various waste types.

Hazardous toxic signs must be shown to collect and re-processing of waste, which is hazardous to humans and animals, and a risk to the environment. This waste is usually chemical by-products, in liquid, solid or sludge form, which can contain a range of harmful components including heavy metals, halogens, dioxins, asbestos, PCB's, pesticides, or cleaning fluids.
