All waste delivered to our centres is separated and sorted. This makes sure that as much waste as possible goes for reuse or recycling.
Reusing items is the best way environmentally for dealing with waste before recycling and composting. Items for reuse may go for resale through a variety of outlets including charities and other markets.
If waste can't be reused, recycled or composted, it goes for disposal.
If you have any concerns about your waste being treated in this way, please speak to one of the site attendants who will carefully deal with any items of a personal nature.
There are some types of waste that we cannot accept in any circumstances. Trade waste is not accepted.
Please make sure that all personal data is removed from electrical items such as PCs, laptops, smart TVs, mobile phones, tablets and sat navs.
What else can you do
Please use your kerbside collection run by your local district or borough council as you normally would.
See our tips to help you minimise your waste.
If your items still have some life left in them, you could try selling them online or compost garden waste at home.
You can buy 50 litre bags of garden soil improver at all our recycling centres for £3 per bag. Please bring the correct money if possible to limit cash handling.
Please don't make a special trip to purchase soil improver as we can't currently guarantee stock being available.
