What happens to my waste?

Every single plastic bottle, every glass jar and every piece of paper you recycle in your bins at home is recycled into something new.

And every blade of grass, every eggshell and teabag you recycle is made into compost.

Even some of the things that you can’t recycle are turned into something that we use everyday…electricity!

Important information about building and 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 are recycling or disposing of business waste, visit the business waste page.
