A to Z guide on waste

We have put together an A to Z reduce, reuse and recycle guide for households.


You can search using the A to Z for a wide range of items and find out how you can reduce, reuse or recycle them.

Here are some ideas to help you decide what to do with your unwanted items:

  • sell your unwanted goods on internet auction sites
  • go to a car boot sale - visit the  Car Boot Junction website to find out more
  • donate good quality items to local charity shops - please remember to check what your local charity shops can reuse and recycle
  • advertise in the Free Ads section of your local paper or on your community noticeboard
  • offer unwanted items on your local  Freecycle or Freegle network

If you need more information or advice or if you want to make a suggestion, please email: wastemanagement@derbyshire.gov.uk or tel: 01629 538120.

You can also contact your local district, borough or city council - find out how to contact them by visiting our other councils page.
