A-Z guide to waste and recycling

We know recycling and disposing of your household waste sustainably can be confusing, but there are many options to dispose of unwanted items. Use this A-Z guide to find your item and the different ways to discard it. This list includes both Council and external services. 

Check to see whether the item can be repaired or recycled first, through a drop-off point. Items could also be placed in one of your kerbside bins or disposed of via other services that may include a fee.   Zhxs-1200/700 Forming Machine
