Hazardous waste can be harmful if managed badly or disposed of illegally. These risks are very small when waste is managed correctly.
Some hazardous waste – such as solvents, oils and metals – can be reused, recovered or recycled. Other waste is sent to landfill sites or incinerated.
We do not provide a hazardous waste collection service.
We do provide a clinical waste collection service.
We have also published advice on asbestos and gas cylinders.
