We offer a free collection service for those items of hazardous household waste that our Household Waste Recovery Centres won’t accept such as asbestos, some garden pesticides and flammable solvents. There is a limit of how much of these materials we will collect from any one property and once these limits are reached there will be no further free collections from this property.
You must ensure that your hazardous materials are prepared properly for collection. It is important that they are ready for collection on the agreed date as the council pay for the contractor to visit your property even if there is nothing collected. However, we would ask that you do not put the materials out for collection until our contractor has phoned you and you have an agreed collection date.
To use our hazardous household waste collection service, you need to fill out this form. If you need help filling in your details, please call 0345 600 6400 and one of our contact centre staff members will complete the form on your behalf.
Please note, this collection service is for householders only and not for any waste generated by a business. Businesses must make their own arrangements for a hazardous waste collection. Some suggested contractors are detailed on page 7 of the booklet above or The Asbestos Removal Contractors Association (ARCA).
Contacts- If you have any doubts about dismantling, removing or the preparation of asbestos, or if you would like to arrange for testing to be done, you can get professional advice from either:
