What is Hazardous Waste?

If waste has the potential to present harm to human health or the environment, it’s otherwise known as hazardous waste. The List of Waste (LoW) codes define types of waste, which are determined by how the waste is created. These codes were formerly known as EWC codes.

Hazardous wastes have properties that make them oxidising agents, flammable, irritant, harmful, toxic, carcinogenic, corrosive, infectious, mutagenic, or ecotoxic.

We collect the following hazardous waste examples:

  • Solvent collection
  • Chemical collection (e.g., brake fluid or print toner)
  • Waste paint collection
  • Battery waste collection, including lead acid, Ni-Cd and mercury
  • Pesticide waste collection
  • Fluorescent light tube collection
  • Waste oil collection
  • Electrical equipment containing Ozone-Depleting Substances collection (ODS waste), such as fridges
  • Electrical equipment with potentially dangerous components collection, including cathode ray tubes – for instance, computer monitors and televisions
  • Hazardous packaging waste collection
