Hazardous waste

Hazardous waste

We do not provide a hazardous waste collection service

Hazardous waste can be harmful if managed badly or disposed of illegally but these risks are very small when waste is managed correctly.

Some hazardous waste can be reused, recovered or recycled, such as solvents, oils and metals. Other waste is sent to landfill sites or incinerated.

Go to the GOV.UK website to find out about disposing of hazardous waste or the Environment agency website to check if your waste is hazardous. For more information about the control of hazardous substances, go to the Health and Safety Executive website.
