Hazardous waste

Hazardous waste is any solid or liquid material that may cause harm to human health or the environment if not disposed of correctly. The following are examples of hazardous waste:

  • Asbestos
  • Flammable liquids
  • Garden chemicals
  • Household cleaning products
  • Motoring products
  • Paint (Liquid)
  • Photographic chemicals
  • Poisons
  • Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG) cylinders
  • Items containing mercury

Disposal must be done in a way that avoids harming the environment or causing harm to human health. You should never dispose of household hazardous waste (e.g. pesticides or creosote) down sinks, drains, lavatories, watercourses, ditches, near wildlife habitats or ponds.

Products for disposal should not be mixed together, and containers should be clearly labelled.
