Problem waste

What Is Problematic Waste?

Problematic wastes are wastes that have the potential to cause environmental damage. These waste are either dangerous themselves or contain potentially dangerous chemicals that maybe released as they breakdown. As a result of this, they are difficult to dispose of and if not disposed of correctly they can cause serious wide-ranging environmental impacts.
These items SHOULD NOT be disposed of in either your green or yellow-lidded bin, skip bin or verge collection.  These items include:
Many of these items contian toxic materials but, if disposed of correctly, can be either safely neutralised or recycled.

Residents can bring household hazardous wastes to the Recycling Centre and have them safely disposed for free.  Look out for special Disposal Days held in different council areas during the year.
