PlantMat Disposal

How will I know when it's time to replace the PlantMat?

Although the PlantMat can be used on multiple occasions, once it reaches capacity it must be safely disposed of within; The Waste (England and Wales) Regulations 2011

There will be a visual indicator (you will see a colour change where the spillage has been absorbed) and the PlantMat will become increasingly rigid when nearing capacity.

How To Dispose of a PlantMat

Is it contaminated?


If it is to be discarded then it will normally fall under waste code "15 02 02" absorbents, filter materials (including oil filters not otherwise specified), wiping cloths, protective clothing contaminated by dangerous substances.


Due to damage etc then it may be disposed of together with other wastes identified with the waste code "20 03 01 mixed municipal waste" in line with The List of Wastes (England) Regulations 2005.

For Uncontaminated PlantMat's
