Disposing of domestic hazardous waste

Recycling centres

Special arrangements will need to be made for the disposal of hazardous waste, however Household Waste Recycling centres do take a wide range of materials and it is worth checking to see if these centres will take your waste.

Small amounts of domestic asbestos-related waste will be accepted at certain recycling centres. 

If your asbestos-related waste exceeds the accepted size or weight, you are responsible for its disposal. Please see our asbestos page for more information. 

Commercial businesses

If you are a commercial business, you will be responsible for making your own arrangements for the safe storage, collection and disposal of hazardous waste. A number of companies offer hazardous waste collection services in the Lincolnshire area. Information on service providers can be found in commercial telephone directory listings under "waste disposal services".

Council collection

North Kesteven does offer a service to collect small quantities of domestic hazardous waste in the event that the material cannot be disposed of through the normal the domestic collection or at a recycling centre. This Council service is currently provided at no cost to the householder.

We arrange these collections through a specialised waste carrier when we have sufficient requests for this service, so unfortunately delays in disposal can occur.

Please note that for each item for disposal, we will require the name of the product, the manufacturer, the quantity and whether the container is leak proof. If the containers are leak proof, we suggest you store all of the chemicals in a box to make the collection more efficient. If a container is leaking, please double bag it and store it separately from the other chemicals.
