Hazardous household waste

What to do with hazardous household waste, such as pesticides and asbestos.

Hazardous household waste can be identified by an orange and black hazard symbol or black symbols in a red diamond present on packaging.

Examples of hazardous household waste include anti-freeze, white spirit and pesticides. This type of waste can be taken to Marchwood HWRC.

It must be delivered in a sealed container and placed in the designated area. If you are unsure where to put it, please ask a member of staff.

A maximum quantity of five litres of hazardous waste per household per month will be accepted.

Plasterboard is accepted at the tip in small amounts.
