There are 3 main categories of muck away, including:

- Hazardous muck away is defined as a gathering of waste that contains properties that make it harmful to the environment and human health. For example, clearing a petrol station.
- Non-hazardous muck away includes a collection of different waste products that are not harmful to the environment and human life.
