Hazardous waste disposal

Find out how to get rid of hazardous waste.

Hazardous waste cannot be disposed of with your normal household waste because it may be dangerous to human health or the environment.

You can dispose of some hazardous household waste items yourself at the reuse and recycling centre in New Cross. This includes:

Asbestos and boxed chemicals

The City of London provides a hazardous household waste collection service to help you safely dispose of asbestos and boxed chemicals including paint.

If you want to arrange a collection or would like more information regarding this service please visit the City of London's website or call them on 020 7332 3433.
