What are stickers?

Stickers refer to the labels used on packaging involved in the transportation and handling of hazardous waste. These stickers are essential for safety and compliance with both national and international regulations.


Here’s what these stickers generally include, but may include vary depending on the service partner responsible for the execution of the waste pickups:

  1. ASN number: A unique identifier used to track and manage different types of hazardous waste
  2. UN number: A four-digit number that identifies the specific hazardous material based on the UN classification system. 
  3. Product name: The specific name of the hazardous waste material
  4. Article number: A number specifically set by the service partner to internally track and identify the type of waste
  5. Eural code: A six-digit number to categorise waste in the EU
  6. Location of origin: The physical location where the hazardous waste material was released and picked up
  7. Processor: The company responsible for processing the hazardous waste material


These stickers are crucial for the safe transport and handling of hazardous waste as they provide immediate, clear, and accessible information about the risks associated with the materials. They assist in preventing accidents and ensuring that emergency responders have the information necessary to deal with incidents effectively. Compliance with these labeling requirements is monitored by relevant Dutch authorities to ensure public safety and environmental protection.
