Hazardous Waste Scrap Metal Grades

Recycling hazardous waste correctly is often overlooked by individuals and small business, but when good practises are ignored, significant fines can be received from the Environment Agency.

In an era where the population is conscious about recycling & knowing the environmental impact our waste has on the planet, being compliant with hazardous waste products is ever more important.

Scrap Local has partnered with yards throughout the UK to recycle your Hazardous waste in a fully compliant, cost-effective way.

If your business produces regular amounts of waste containing residue, lubricants, gases or specialist materials, the most important way to remain compliant is to choose a fully licensed recycling centre.

Our directory of scrapyards contains thousands of fully licensed dealers that can also help dispose of your hazardous items. 

The following items are graded as hazardous waste: lead-acid batteries, oil drums, engines, gearboxes, spent aerosol cans, gas bottles, refrigeration units. Even though WEEE products (which are covered in Waste Electronics) are their own category of waste, TV Monitors, small domestic appliances and other household electronics are deemed as hazardous waste.

Technology – it’s evolving so fast!
