Norfolk County Council Household Hazardous Waste Days

Posted on: August 30, 2019

Household Hazardous Waste handed into Norfolk County Council recycling centres

Waste is considered hazardous if it needs special disposal methods to prevent harm to humans or the environment. We can’t collect hazardous waste in our skips, because we don’t have the facilities to transport and dispose of it safely. Most recycling centres don’t accept hazardous waste except on special amnesty days. A series of these Household Hazardous Waste Days are taking place at Norfolk recycling centres over the next two months.
