Hazardous trade waste
We don’t collect trade waste and Cumbria County Council’s Household Waste Recycling Centres will not accept trade waste.
You should keep hazardous trade waste secure and arrange for it to be collected by a licensed waste carrier.
Clinical waste includes human or animal tissue, blood, syringes, swabs, bandages and other waste medical equipment.
We provide a service to collect clinical waste. Please talk to your doctor if you need this service, they will normally arrange the collections with us.
Offensive waste including used nappies, incontinence pads and stomach feeding equipment can be disposed of as normal in your grey wheeled bin.
