Why are fire extinguishers hazardous waste?

Every business within Stockport has a legal obligation to ensure their hazardous waste is disposed of safely and legally.

Waste is considered ‘hazardous’ under the government’s environmental legislation (see here) when it contains substances or has properties that may make it harmful to human health or the environment. This does not necessarily mean it is an immediate risk to human health, although some waste can be.

Fire extinguishers are classified as hazardous waste due to the high pressure chemicals they contain that could be harmful if mishandled.

We take all kind of fire extinguishers. The kinds we take are:

  • Water
