Waste is hazardous if it is harmful to people or the environment.
Hazardous household waste items, such as weedkiller, are usually marked with an orange label and can be taken to some of our recycling centres.
Information on what specialist or dangerous waste your local Household Waste and Recycling Centre can accept can be found on our A-Z of Waste guide.
Find how to dispose of hazardous waste, visit the Environment Agency.
Clinical waste comes from healthcare activities that may pose a risk of infection.
Your district or borough council may offer a clinical waste collection service.
