Company Introduction

CK Beckett founded in 1984 by 2 brothers and a lot of commitment started off in the general waste management trade.

PCB Disposal


“A polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) is an organic chlorine compound with the formula C12H10−xClx. Polychlorinated biphenyls were once widely deployed as dielectric and coolant fluids in electrical apparatus, carbonless copy paper and in heat transfer fluids.[1]” – curtesy of Wikipedia


As PCBtransformeroilsample‘s are now proven to be highly carcinogenic, anything it comes in contact with has to be disposed of in the correct manor and the correct disposal certificates have to be provided. CK Beckett are fully licensed to remove, transport, store and dispose of all PCB contaminate items. A fully PCB test is required to determine the PPM (parts per million) content of the PCB, this can be done by yourselves or we can offer this service for you.
