DIY waste

Following on from the Prime Minister’s announcement on 23 March 2020 all Recycling Centres are closed until further notice. Please stay at home.

Please minimise your waste as much as possible by avoiding doing any large DIY projects or clear outs.
If possible, please store your waste in a safe place such as a garage or a shed. Make sure you store them away from any heat sources and do not block any fire escapes.

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
  • garden waste
  • paint and paint cans
  • timber and wood
  • general waste

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