Hazardous waste must be separated from your general household waste before taking it to your local HWRS.
If you are unsure whether a material is hazardous or not, please ask a member of staff at the site, or contact us on 01243 642106.
2 Hearing aids
Please contact your local hospital to see if they accept old hearing aids.
Alternatively you can recycle your old hearing aids by taking them to your local Household Waste Recycling Site (HWRS) and putting them in the container for ‘small appliances’.
3 Household hazardous chemicals
