Hazardous waste collection

The City of London operates a household hazardous waste collection and disposal service (HWCDS) on behalf of 30 of the 32 London Boroughs (the exceptions being the London Borough of Hillingdon and Haringey Council) and the City of London.

The service is able to arrange for the removal of wrapped asbestos and packaged chemicals, including paint and empty paint cans, from households.

If you find that you have either asbestos or chemicals to dispose of you will need to contact us with the details of what needs to be collected.
