Hazardous substances

We work with the Fire Brigade, Police and other public services to respond to chemical incidents.

We also check the background levels of both gamma and beta radiation. We operate a continuous gamma radiation alarm, along with other London authorities, and submit data to the government's national database.

If you want to report a chemical spillage or radiation problem, call 020 8854 8888.

Hazardous waste collection

We run a hazardous waste collection and disposal service, in partnership with the City of London.
