If you’re looking for a product-specific solution, the below pages focus on some of the most common forms of hazardous waste in more depth:

battery recycling


Batteries are in many products that we use every day – from laptops to mobile phones. However, they are classed as hazardous when they become waste as they contain corrosive materials and heavy metals. These materials must be disposed of in accordance with environmental regulations.

Fluorescent Tubes

Commonly used in workplaces, fluorescent lighting works by passing an electric current through mercury vapour. However, because mercury is a hazardous heavy metal that can be toxic to living organisms, once the fluorescent tubes have stopped working they must be disposed of correctly.
