What to do with hazardous household waste

Always handle hazardous waste with care. Please do not put any hazardous waste in your general rubbish - take it to your nearest household recycling centre (HRC) instead.

Specific advice about asbestos

If you want to take small quantities of asbestos to a HRC you must call us in advance on 0345 678 9007 so we can arrange for you to collect wrapping materials free of charge from the recycling centre. Please don't just turn up with the asbestos. More information can be found on our hazardous waste page.
