Hazardous Waste disposal options and current charges 2016

Some types of Hazardous waste are accepted free of charge at the Household Waste Recycling Centres in Suffolk.

Private householders, educational establishments and charities can take the following items to any of the

HWRCs in Suffolk free of charge:

 Engine oil and Cooking oil

Empty containers of paint or chemicals can be put into your black (refuse) bin for disposal. Water based paint that has completely dried out can also be put into the black bin for disposal.

Hazardous waste – chargeable disposal (£45.13):

Most types of Hazardous Waste can be collected by the Council for a charge of £45.13 per collection. This includes items such as:

DIY products e.g. varnishes, paint, paint stripper

Flammable liquids e.g. white spirit, paraffin, wood stains.

Garden chemicals/pesticides e.g. weed killers and insect killers

Household cleaning products and chemicals e.g. toilet / drain cleaners & bleach

Poisons e.g. rat or mouse poisons

Motoring products e.g. antifreeze, brake/clutch fluid, petrol, diesel.

Very large amounts of the above items may incur additional charges.

Bonded Asbestos (£75.13):

(Such as corrugated sheets, guttering/downpipe, water tanks & asbestos pieces)

We can collect up to 50kgs of bonded asbestos for a charge of £75.13, providing it is from a domestic source and has been removed by the householder and not by a contractor.

The asbestos must be securely wrapped or bagged (unwrapped asbestos will not be collected) using heavy duty 1000 gauge polythene which can be obtained from most builders merchants and DIY stores.

To avoid manual handling problems sheets should be wrapped as single sheets and not together. The wrapped sheets must be sealed with tape.

Sheets should not be broken, but in the event small broken pieces should be placed in a heavy duty polythene bag.

The packaged asbestos must be of a weight that can be easily lifted by one person and all packages must be labelled ‘’ WARNING – CONTAINS ASBESTOS – DO NOT INHALE DUST’’

Punctured or split packaging will not be collected.

Larger quantities of bonded asbestos sheets/pieces as well as dismantled bonded asbestos sheds, garages and outhouses can be collected and are charged at a different rate depending on quantity. Please contact us for further details and prices.
