Household hazardous waste disposal

To arrange for a collection of household hazardous waste, please call the Corporation of London, who provide a collection service on our behalf.

Details

The Corporation of London will collect small quantities of asbestos and hazardous chemicals, for example pesticides, petrol, paraffin, diesel, creosote and paint strippers.

Small amounts of bonded asbestos can be taken to Waldo Road for disposal. Once at the centre, you will need to contact the site staff to arrange for the container to be unlocked before you unload this material. Please note, it will only be accepted if it is put in at least two bags that have been sealed to prevent dust escaping.

Further information on hazardous waste is available from the Corporation of London's Hazardous Waste collection service (telephone number:  020 7332 3433) and also from the Environment Agency's website.

Cost

There is no cost for the first collection (depending on the amount of waste), but subsequent collections will be chargeable depending on the amount and type of material you have.
