Hazardous waste or large commercial items

Last Modified December 02, 2019

Hazardous waste is any waste harmful to humans or the environment.

If your business produces these types of waste items you are legally responsible for the correct disposal of them and need to check that the waste disposal company you use is registered to carry hazardous waste.

We are unable to collect any hazardous waste as part of our trade waste service.

The Environment Agency has further guidance on hazardous waste regulations.
