EWMS was created with a view of protecting the environment by providing a previously unavailable service for the safe disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous industrial waste.
EWMS was created with a series of main aims in mind, namely:
- Providing Gibraltar with a hitherto unavailable service for the collection and disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous industrial wastes.
- Ensuring that Gibraltar was able to comply with the ever increasing volume and complexity of local, - European and international environmental legislation.
- Meeting the overriding aim of protecting all aspects of the environment.
- EWMS was established in 1994 in order to adequately and responsibly deal with hazardous waste produced by local industries and Government departments in an environmentally friendly way.
Set up by Alexis Almeda (Chief Environmental Health Officer from 1974 to 1994) and Alex Trinidad (Operations Manager for Shell Co. of Gibraltar Limited until 1995), EWMS was established in 1994 in order to adequately and responsibly deal with hazardous waste produced by Government departments and local industries in an environmentally friendly way. Before EWMS, there were no effective and ecological methods employed locally to dispose of hazardous waste, and much was disposed of as general refuse. Nowadays, due to the ever-growing consciousness of society with regards to environmental conservation as well as the legal obligations placed on industry generally and the policing of these by the Environmental Agency, a large volume of the hazardous waste produced locally is now safely disposed of by us.
We are fully licensed by the Environmental Agency to collect, store and dispose of hazardous wastes.
