Hardcore and rubble

You can take hardcore and rubble to a Recycling Centre. You are limited to the amount of rubble you can take in one visit. The limit is five (900mm x 600mm) rubble sacks per visit.

This includes:

  • bricks
  • ceramics
  • clay
  • concrete
  • paving slabs
  • rubble
  • sand
  • stones
  • tiles
  • soil

A restriction on the amount of rubble that can be disposed of is being introduced as it is recognised that rubble is one of the main types of waste that traders are disposing of unlawfully at the household waste recycling centres. Residents of Greater Manchester are still able to dispose of rubble if they have carried the work out at home by themselves.


Do not put rubble or soil in any of your bins at home.

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.
