Destruction method

SUEZ's destruction method is specifically tailored to the type of product being destroyed, whether it is end-of-line stock, out of date stock, recalled product, insurance claims, damaged stock or seized items.

All products are held in a secure 24-hour video bonded area prior to destruction.

Recyclable materials such as glass, aluminum, paper, cardboard, steel, plastic and liquid are recovered for reuse from the destruction process. Any non-recyclable residuals are compacted and disposed of under supervision at an approved landfill through a secure burial process.

A Product Destruction Assurance Certificate is issued at the completion of all work. This specifies the product type, its quantity, remission numbers and date destroyed.

Sustainable treatment & disposal

Our sustainable product destruction services focus on full resource recovery opportunities to ensure that as much of the product as possible is recovered and kept out of landfill.

SUEZ achieves this by using a combination of automated and manual handling processes to disassemble products into individual material components for recycling. 

We can also provide reporting on the result.

SUEZ’s product destruction service complies with the highest industry standards for operational safety and quality.
