Hazardous waste and paint removal
Hazardous waste collection
A special hazardous waste collection can be arranged for:
- Part or full containers of solvent based paint
- Other hazardous household waste (not asbestos)
The hazardous waste collection service is free to residents. Collection, treatment and disposal costs of hazardous waste are expensive for the council (approx. £80 per collection). For this reason, residents are urged to follow the advice as set out in these pages and to use this service only when absolutely necessary.
To request a collection please contact Waveney District Council's Waste Management Team. The application details you provide will be shared with our contractor who will contact you within four to six weeks for collection.
Please note that the hazardous waste collection does not cater for asbestos. If you need to dispose of asbestos, please see our asbestos disposal and advice pages.
