Who we are
About Us
JBL Environmental Ltd is based in Blenheim New Zealand. The company was formed in 2005 from the staff of JBL Environmental Services, established in 1997.
JBL Environmental Ltd specializes in the collection and disposal of hazardous materials including hazardous waste, and has gained recognition for this work throughout New Zealand.
JBL Environmental Ltd clears material directly from your site and organises all operations to final disposal. JBL is also involved with waste stream analysis (SWAP) and industrial processes, with the view to minimizing inputs and maximizing use of materials. With the implementation of the "carbon tax" on landfills, JBL is also involved in the analysis of waste for determination of the Unique Emissions Factor (UEF).
  • The range of work carried out by the JBL team includes:
    • Collection and disposal of hazardous materials
    • Collection and disposal of hazardous waste
    • Site clean-up and remediation
    • Investigation of unknown materials
    • Transporting and documentation
    • Tracking of materials handled
    • Analysis of waste stream for determination of UEF
    • Training
Major Areas of Work
Agrichemical Collection Programme
JBL is currently contracted to the 3R Group to undertake agrichemical collections throughout the South Island under the Agrecovery scheme. In recent years JBL has completed agrichemical collections in Marlborough, Otago, Southland, Westcoast, Canterbury and the Nelson and Tasman Districts.
Servicing of Transfer Stations and Landfills
This involves ongoing work to remove hazardous waste and other materials not suitable for direct land filling. This includes finding alternative environmentally acceptable disposal, or processing methods of waste to allow disposal to landfill. JBL currently services Marlborough, Nelson, Kaikoura, Tasman and the West Coast regions.
Mobile Hazardous Waste Collections:
This is a mobile collection service, which allows the public to bring household hazardous waste to a central public collection area. JBL has been involved in mobile hazardous waste collections in the Auckland, Wellington, Canterbury, Tasman, Queenstown, Wanaka and the West Coast regions.
Schools, Hospitals and the Private Business Sector
JBL calls on site to deal with difficult situations where customers do not have the ability to handle hazardous materials. This service includes identification, sorting, packing and shipment of hazardous materials.
General Public
Private sector customers requiring disposal of hazardous waste often seek advice on disposal. JBL can work on behalf of other parties to offer advice on correct disposal methods, or arrange collection and disposal.
SWAP and UEF Studies
Solid Waste Analysis Protocol (SWAP) - Waste stream analysis studies undertaken by JBL for the Marlborough and West Coast Councils. JBL have completed 26 studies to date. The last four SWAP studies in Marlborough have included analysis for determination of the Unique Emissions Factor (UEF).
JBL management will discuss hazardous waste issues with you in an effort to find environmentally acceptable disposal solutions.
