What Alternative Can I Use?
Whenever possible, use a non-hazardous alternative. Environmentally friendly and safer options are available for household cleaning, home improvement and garden care.
There are five basic ingredients that can be used as alternatives to hazardous cleaning products commonly found in the home.
These ingredients are: baking soda, pure soap, white vinegar, borax, and washing soda.
Other things you can do include:
All hazardous wastes collected in Gibraltar are sent for either disposal or recovery operations to licensed plants in Spain under the Shipment of Waste Regulations 2006.
Waste oil from shipping and other sources was treated (partial recovery) at a Waste Oil Treatment Facility in Gibraltar but is currently exported mainly to Spain and other EU countries under the Shipment of Waste Regulations 2006.
