What do householders in your community do with hazardous waste? MyHazWaste has been developed by us to offer your community an affordable and efficient way to run hazardous household waste collection events. MyHazWaste runs one-off or regular events in association with local councils or organisations across New Zealand.
Hazardous household waste collection events give the people of your community an opportunity to hand over hazardous waste that they may not know how to dispose of. They also provide an important education opportunity, allowing you to share existing and new ways of dealing with hazardous household waste.Enquire now
