Pesticide disposal

It is illegal to dispose of garden chemicals or their wastes in drains, sinks or toilets as they can cause harm to human health, wildlife and the environment.   

Residents should take their household and garden chemicals to one of our Household Waste Recycling Centres. They will need to be disposed of in the hazardous chemical store.

Do not dispose of these chemicals in your home bins.

Only empty and washed chemical containers should ever be disposed of in your normal refuse collection. Washings from products should be used in the garden as directed on the container.
