Storing hazardous wastes at household waste recycling centres

The Health and Safety Executive has produced guidance on the storage of hazardous substances, primarily aimed at specialised manufacturing and bulk storage facilities.1 As household waste recycling centres often receive a wide range of materials, and in relatively small quantities, this document has been drafted to provide practical guidance, using the principles set out in existing substance-specific guidance.
The following guidance follows those principles and specifically addresses the storage of hazardous waste at household waste recycling centres (HWRCs), also called civic amenity sites. Waste received at HWRCs is usually domestic, varied and in small quantities. So this guidance has been drawn up to give pragmatic advice. This guidance considers the specific implications of household hazardous wastes at HWRC sites; it does not cover generic hazards such as manual handling, workplace transport and slips and trips.
