Hazardous waste

Waste is hazardous if it can cause harm to humans or the environment and includes any waste that needs specialist disposal.

We don't normally take these items at our recycling centres. However, we hold annual free household hazardous waste days when we do accept certain hazardous waste items.

Household hazardous waste days

These are for residents disposing of hazardous household waste only. They are not for any business, group or other organisation.

Household hazardous waste days will be held on:

Some local district, borough or city councils may offer a hazardous waste collection. However, they might charge for it. You can also find specialist hazardous waste disposal contractors online. Check they have a waste carriers' licence and where they will dispose of the waste.
