In this article the most modern versions of unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) will be presented from the aspect of safer identification of dangerous effluent materials during rail accidents and catastrophes. These technologies are crucial to minimize the pollution of dangerous waste generated during accidents or catastrophes. Doing this, exploration of further opportunities of waste management - satisfying the conditions of the highest level of environmental safety - is necessary, as well as to find new methods to handle waste in time securely and professionally. Exploration of unprecedented solutions during rail- and road accidents or catastrophes is also reasonable. Relevancy of application of drones is particular as long as the approachability of the affected area is difficult or impossible. During the neutralization of explosive, hazardous or toxic materials the risk of life could be eliminated using drones equipped with the most modern technologies.
