What to do with hazardous waste

Hazardous waste, including asbestos, must not be put in refuse (general rubbish) or recycling bins.

To find out what to do with hazardous waste, including leftover paint, please view the information listed on the Suffolk Recycles website.

If you have clinical or medical waste to dispose of, including used dressings and sharps boxes, please visit our clinical, medical and sharps collections webpage.
