Some types of household waste need to be disposed of carefully to avoid harm to people and the environment.

Batteries, engine oil and light bulbs

You can take these to designated containers at our household waste recycling centres.


Water based paints can be disposed of with general waste, but all other paints are classified as hazardous waste and will need to be taken to Blackstock Road household waste recycling centre.

Clinical waste

This is a free service that you will need to arrange with your district nurse or with the hospital as your return home. A supply of yellow sacks will be provided each week with information on how to use them.

Once you have put your waste items into the yellow sack securely seal it and place it outside your front door, or in the agreed place, by 7am on your collection day.

Do not place clinical waste into your bins.
