Bulky waste itemsThe collection and disposal of ‘black bag’ and mixed recyclable waste from the kerbside are being prioritised at this time. We encourage residents to avoid generating DIY or bulky waste in the first instance unless they are able to store it safely at home until it is possible to donate for reuse or dispose of safely.
Please do not leave any waste outside the gates of the recycling centres. Leaving waste at the gates or anywhere else is classed as fly tipping and is a criminal offence for which perpetrators will be prosecuted and fined up to £50,000.
Please do not place bulky waste in your ‘black bag’ waste.
You can find information on reuse and upcycling on the Smart Living website, which includes information on how to determine whether an item might be suitable for reuse by someone else. Items that are clean, whole and dry could have a second-life and your donations can help support those in need and raise much needed funds for good causes. You can use the Smart Living reuse directory to find out more, but please contact your local organisation directly to arrange a time to deliver your items
