Waste Disposal Procedure

The management of AUTO emphasizes on establishing Environment Management System (EMS) inside & outside its factory premises to ensure environmental protection in the process of using raw materials, manufacturing products and discharging wastes. The management is firmly committed to comply all the relative obligations to ensure environment friendly condition in and around the factory.

The company has developed certain systemic procedures for the disposal of its wastes to prevent any environmental pollution and also for the safety of the workers & staff as well as the overall community.

Disposal wastes in AUTO are Empty Drum, Waste Accessories, Waste Metal Items & Waste Glass Items etc. Specific guidelines for the disposal of wastes are mentioned below.

  • Day to day wastes inside the production system will be kept in the respective area or waste boxes and at the end of each working day all of these wastes will be dispatched outside the factory in a designated safe place.
  • Empty Drums, Empty Container, Empty Bottle, Waste Plastic etc. we keep in a designated area & then send to the supplier for Recycle. The empty container of Thinner & other chemical container should not be used in the factory and not be given to workers for any other purpose.
  • At first, we try to repair the wastage metal items & if it is not possible then we keep it temporary in the wastage store & sell to the producer for recycle.
  • We keep all the accessories Waste items such as Carton, Poly, Gum Tape, offset items, Plastic clip & others Wastage in a designated area & & then send to the supplier for Recycle.
  • Others Items such as fused tube light & Broken Glass we keep in a designated area & then send to the supplier for Recycle.
  • During the removal of wastes it will be ensured that no nuisance is created because of the removing process and it does not affect the workers staff and also the tenants in and around.
  • Store & Administration of HR will maintain records of all waste disposals.
  • To sell the waste one team of three dept. (1 person – Admin, 1 person – store & 1 person from security dept.) will inventory item wise qty. Finally by a challan it will be out from the factory.
  • Waste which are not sellable, will be destroy by burning at a designated place.

Accumulated list of wastes & disposal procedures:

Segregated wastes are finally disposed of when they are no longer required. Disposal procedure depends on waste category. Some wastes, such as chemical wastewater requires treatment by ETP (Effluent Treatment Plant) and some require simple disposal procedure such as dumping on landfilling site. On the contrary, some other wastes are reused and recycled. In the following tables, we have mentioned all the wastes and their disposal procedures-

The company does not through outside of the factory. Its infection impact may involve with the air which is harmful for environment.

The company is also segregate in area from where is delivered to supplier for recycle as same way.


Factory supervisor is responsible to monitor as rule and he is maintaining register with records as well.
Tube Light

  1. Dear Sir,

    We are happy to see the picture (the first in your article) of one of our lines of 6 drums rag tearing machine.

    I’d like to precise some information you wrote in your article, our rag tearing lines can work with the best quality from 400 kg/h until 2000 kg/h depending of the raw material and in the final use of the material once is recycled.

    I hope this information could be useful for you.

    We are making this kind of machines since 1960, and we have been improving them every day, the information of the production corresponds to the first series built in the 60’s of the last century.

    Best regards,
