Hazardous waste

The council cannot collect hazardous waste such as asbestos or fire extinguishers due to licensing conditions.

Please seek advice from a service directory, such as Yellow Pages, Thompson etc. under "Waste".

Alternatively, view the ARCA website which gives lots of advice and information on the removal of hazardous waste as well as listing contractors who are UKAS accredited. The website also contains a section of advice for householders.

For information of how to safely dispose of needles or syringes found in the environment please click on the following link needles and syringes

Some hazardous household substances can be accepted at our Household Waste Recycling Centres, but if you are unsure please phone our Customer Contact Centre during office hours to confirm on 01908 252570.  We do not accept hazardous commercial waste.

Asbestos can be taken to New Bradwell Community Recycling Centre but new legislation states it must be completely wrapped in plastic for the safety of members of the public and our staff on site.
