Hazardous waste is defined as waste that is considered dangerous or potentially harmful to human health or the environment.

Hazardous wastes must be disposed of in a designated way, separately from other wastes.
Electrical items, such as televisions, computers, laptops, and other electronics should not be put in a skip as these items contain harmful chemicals and materials that can damage the environment.
Medical waste such as needles, syringes, and other medical equipment should not be put in a skip as these can be hazardous to human health.

If you have any hazardous chemicals such as solvents, pesticides, or cleaning products, check with your local council to see if they provide a special hazardous waste collection. If not, there may be a designated center or private company that can collect and dispose of hazardous waste for you.
Asbestos is a hazardous material that needs to be disposed of by a licensed professional. In case you discover asbestos at your property, it is best to contact a licensed asbestos removal company who can safely and correctly remove and dispose of asbestos for you.
