In accordance with environment legislation: asbestos or fibro, tyres, food, liquids, gas bottles, flammable containers and general hazardous materials including solvents, paints, acids, oils, poisons, needles & syringes, explosives and any other environmentally unfriendly substances or objects likely to cause harm or damage. To dispose of these materials you will need to contact your local council.
