Hazardous Waste

Any waste, which can be damaging to the environment or signifies a health risk, must be discarded as hazardous waste according to legislation on this subject.

We will then ensure that it is treated or disposed of according to regulations.

Examples of hazardous waste could be:

  • Batteries
  • Energy saving light bulbs
  • Chemicals
  • Paint
  • Spray Cans

The bathroom overflows with hazardous waste

A lot of the products you may use in the bathroom also have to be treated as hazardous waste. For example:

  • Nail polish remover
  • Leftover perfume
  • Descaling products
  • Mercury thermometers

If you have any queries as to what constitutes hazardous waste, you should always contact us. We're only too happy to help.



You have several options when you need to discard your old batteries:

  • a recycling center
  • left on top of your bin in a clear plastic bag tied with a knot (obviously not an option if you are using an underground waste collection system).
  • the hazardous waste box (in a clear plastic bag).

Please remember that batteries are found in a range of products, like greeting cards, shoes and toys - in fact anything that can light up, do something or make any kind of sound.
