Waste is classed as hazardous if it poses potential harm to human health or the environment. This can be defined further by the List of Waste (LoW) code, previously referred to as EWC codes, determined by how the waste is produced.

  • Batteries (e.g. lead acid, Ni-Cd and mercury)
  • Pesticides,
  • Fluorescent light tubes
  • Oils (except edible ones), such as car engine oil
