Industry leading Marijuana disposal solutions
The problem of marijuana disposal has completed an incredible journey in recent years. Transformed from an almost globally criminalised substance to achieving legal status in a growing number of countries worldwide with more joining the list constantly. Now a formally regulated substance for medical and recreational usage. Alongside the resulting transformation of the industry reaching almost industrial levels has brought a new unforeseen problem to the forefront, safe and secure disposal of the waste created through the cultivation and distribution of cannabis and it’s associated products. As the leader in the Incineration industry, we have recently seen n increase in the demand for reliable and economical solutions.
The legal industry has been recently estimated to be worth more than £125 billion in 2019 growing to more than £200 billion in the next ten years.
Having such a radical increase in production we are witnessing a dramatic increase in the management of Marijuana waste created.
Due to the nature of this waste, it is essential that it is disposed of securely.
Following decriminalisation, mass farming and the increase of investment in research for the medical benefits of marijuana, companies are left with surplus amounts of cannabis requiring safe disposal without impacting the greater environment.

Globally legislation towards marijuana disposal differs greatly from country to country and even region to region, however, most regulations require that disposal of cannabis must comply with local laws and regulations and often ensure that the marijuana items be left in a condition that renders it ‘undesirable, unrecognizable and unfit for human or animal use’.
Incineration is recognised as an acceptable form of destruction for:
- Marijuana Plants,
- Marijuana Concentrate,
- Marijuana liquid concentrates,
- Marijuana tinctures,
- Marijuana suppositories.
- Marijuana Solid concentrates
- Cannabis-infused edibles
- Marijuana transdermal patches.
In some instances, Liquid and Solid Extract may be classed as a hazardous waste.
Why incinerate Cannabis Waste?
While not all of the waste from cannabis cultivation requires secure disposal the byproducts may still contain active and regulated substances such as Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) which is the chemical that causes the medicinal and psychoactive effects. If this chemical is not properly disposed of it can cause massive dangers to the local environment. Due to the often unknown nature of the levels of THC and other compounds discarded waste can poison local wildlife and damage the ecology of the region.
In many instances, this should be considered and treated in the same manner as pharmaceutical waste disposal.
Depending upon the size and scale of your operation you may have several options to dispose of waste.
Small operations are often able to personally transfer the waste to a local facility and pay a fee for disposal.
Larger organisations will often employ a waste collection agency to collect and dispose of.
You do also have a third solution, managing your waste directly.
Addfield produces a selection of machines at capacities ranging from 25kg up to 1000kg suitable for managing the smallest quantities of waste produced from laboratories and small dispensaries through to comfortably managing large cannabis farming operations and narcotics disposal.
All our machines have been expertly developed for the agricultural and medical industries to provide highly efficient and environmentally beneficial solutions which are perfect matches for the individual needs of this new burgeoning industry.
