Drum and Pail Waste Disposal and Recycling

Drum and Pail Waste Disposal That Saves You Money

The disposal and collection of waste can be very challenging. With high-risk and possibly materials, it is crucial you are following all handling requirements. Drum and pail waste disposal and recycling is a service that Maratek provides. 


So, what exactly is it? Drum and pail waste disposal is the management of hazardous and non-hazardous waste in a drum or pail container (also known as containerized waste)

With all companies producing waste, Maratek offers a safe and effective way for you to classify it as hazardous or non-hazardous, and further dispose of the waste.

Nonhazardous is exactly that – it is not harmful to your personal health or the environment. It is created from a multitude of industries and can come in solid, liquid, or semi-solid states.

Hazardous waste can be quite harmful to your personal health and/or the environment. Hazardous waste can be liquid, solid, gas, or sludge.



Usually, 55-gallon drums or 205-liter drums are used as a container to transport and dispose of the waste. They are diligently used and recycled as they are a common choice.

With our own fleet services, we support customers with single and multiple locations.
