DIY waste

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 can’t be disposed of at any of our Recycling Centres. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote.

If you  carried out the improvements, repair or alterations to your home yourself you can take it to your local Recycling Centre

This includes:

  • hardcore and rubble (From February 2020, we will be limiting the amount of rubble you can bring – five average-sized 900mm x 600mm rubble sacks per visit)
  • garden waste
  • paint and paint cans
  • timber and wood
  • general waste

Asbestos and plasterboard are not accepted at any of our Recycling Centres.
