Hazardous waste collection

The Royal Borough runs a hazardous waste collection and disposal service in partnership with the City of London. This service is provided free of charge to householders and schools where the quantity of waste is less than five small or three large sheets of asbestos and/or chemical waste less than 50 litres or kilogrammes.

For quantities greater than these, a charge will be incurred. Commercial customers are also entitled to this service at a cost.
