Hazardous waste includes a wide range of waste types that are possible to cause harm to the environment and human beings. This covers waste such as acidic and alkaline materials, solvents, liquid waste, batteries, fluorescent tubes, pressurized cylinders, garage waste, oils, adhesives, effluents, and low-level radioactive materials.

Because hazardous waste has the potential to harm humans, the environment, or both, it requires particular care. Hazardous waste management, including collection, recycling, and disposal, is governed by increasingly strict rules, such as the Hazardous Waste Regulations of 2005

Because of the harmfulness of hazardous waste, we employ up-to-date instruments to ensure the smooth removal and recycling of wastes in your homes or offices.

When waste contains compounds or has features that could damage human health or the environment, it is classified as 'hazardous' under environmental legislation. Although some trash can be hazardous to human health, this does not always guarantee it is.

Hazardous wastes are classified based on their biological, chemical, and physical characteristics. These characteristics result in toxic, reactive, ignitable, corrosive, infectious, or radioactive compounds. Toxic wastes are poisonous even in a minute or trace concentrations.

Our green credentials don't stop there - up to 99% of your waste will be recycled where possible.

Any London Waste provides waste collection bins that come in a variety of colors for material color coding. They are explained below:


This is the color code for biomedical waste of all kinds. Depending on how hazardous the waste is, different containers and disposal methods will be required.


For waste collection, red-colored, non-chlorinated plastic bags or containers will suffice. For medical hazardous waste disposal, the safest option is to get an on-site sterilizer and medical waste shredder.


Because of the nature of this hazardous medical waste, you'll need puncture, leak, and tamper-proof containers. For waste disposal, the situation is like that of red-category waste: you'll need a medical waste shredder.
