Hazardous waste

Our recycling centres at Western Road, Kilmarnock and at Garlaff near Cumnock accept the following materials:

  • car batteries
  • household batteries
  • paint
  • fridges and freezers - there is a charge for the disposal of white goods
  • fluorescent light tubes and bulbs

Household batteries will also be collected from the kerbside via the black box. Please ensure that batteries are contained within a tied or sealed bag before placing in the black box as loose batteries present a Health and Safety risk to collection crews and will not be collected. You can collect a battery disposal bag from any of our local Customer Service Centres, neighbourhood housing offices or Cleansing Services office.

We do not offer a hazardous waste collection service to commercial customers. All enquiries regarding hazardous waste should be made to the Scottish Environmental Protection Authority (SEPA).
