Disposable items
Please try not to use disposable convenience items such as batteries or razors as they increasingly take up valuable landfill space. Try to use durable, reusable items instead.

DIY waste
DIY waste from your household can be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre. However if you wish to take it in a van or twin axle trailer then you will require a permit to do so.

Domestic waste
Your local District or Borough Council is responsible for the collection of your domestic waste. About three-quarters of the waste collected is not recycled and is sent for treatment at one of our two waste treatment plants . Please think carefully about the way you manage your household waste and use the recycling facilities that have been provided in your area.


If in working order, consider donating to a Reuse Organisation
