First Quantum carefully manages waste generated as part of our operations through our commitment to sustainable operations.

We generate the following waste at our operations:

  • Hazardous waste - including used lubricants, batteries, hydrocarbons and process related chemicals;
  • Non-Hazardous waste - including organic matter, wood, construction rubble and plastics;
  • Re-used waste - including waste oil and scrap metals.

All waste is managed in accordance with national waste management regulations, site specific permits and relevant international protocols.

First Quantum continues to look at ways of reducing, reusing, or recycling waste.
