Hazardous waste disposal
Materials classified as hazardous waste require specialist disposal to minimise the risk of them contaminating other forms of waste or damaging the wider environment.
Though hazardous wastes are subject to strict disposal requirements, the process of compliantly achieving this needn’t be stressful. Simply tell us what types of materials you have, and we will find the most cost-effective and environmentally-friendly disposal route available.
If you are uncertain about the origins of a certain waste stream, we can arrange to have it sampled and sent for analysis to identify its composition and classification.
Types of hazardous waste
The following materials are all classified as hazardous waste and so are not permitted to be disposed of in any skips hired through Skip Hire UK.
Fridge/freezers (white goods), Tyres, Paint tins, TVs/Monitors, Asbestos, Clinical/medical waste, Gas cylinders, Fluorescent tubes, Solvents, Liquids, Oils, Batteries, Plasterboard, Hazardous/toxic materials.
In addition to being separated from other types of waste, many forms of hazardous waste also require individual segregation. As an example, though paint tins and batteries are both types of hazardous waste, they must be separated from each other and cannot be disposed of in the same container.
If you have one or more type of hazardous waste in need of disposal, please call our customer service team on 0845 373 1394 and we will create a bespoke waste management package for you.
