Tips and recycling centres
There are 3 household waste recycling centres in the borough that provide recycling facilities for most materials:
You can use any of the these facilities free of charge for waste and recycling from your home. This includes waste from normal day-to-day household activities and 'do it yourself' (DIY) projects.
Tradespeople or builders
Any waste produced by tradespeople or builders you hired to carry out improvements, repair or alterations to your home is classed as business waste and cannot be disposed of at any of our recycling centres. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote.
Vehicles are monitored to make sure the recycling centres are only being used for household waste. Action will be taken against any tradespeople or builders found to be using the recycling centres for business waste.
