How to Dispose of Waste Properly Throughout the Year
Clothing and Textiles
If you’re having a spring clear out this year and need to let go of clothing or textile you no longer want, you can give them a new lease of life by taking them to one of our household waste recycling centres.
Before disposing of charcoal ash or a disposable BBQ, you must make sure the ash has gone cold before placing the items into a bag and placing it in your pink lidded bin. Alternatively, you can take these items to a household waste recycling centre and place charcoal ash into the rubble skip and the disposable BBQ into the household waste skip.
Please try to use all the fireworks you purchased at your event. Spent fireworks should be submerged under water over night, then bagged and placed in your pink lidded bin. Fireworks are not accepted at household waste recycling centres.
If you’ve created a Halloween pumpkin, you can dispose of them in either your pink lidded bin or at a household waste recycling centre once you no longer need them. Alternatively, you can place your pumpkin into a compost bin to reduce the waste created.
If you’re gifted new electrical items this holiday season, please remember to either regift your old electrical items or take them to a household waste recycling centre to be disposed of safely. Any items that remain in good condition may be suitable for reuse.
If you have bought a real Christmas tree this year you can dispose of it by either taking it to a household waste recycling centre or cutting it up and putting into your garden waste bin.
Plastic Christmas trees can be taking to a household waste recycling centre if you no longer need it. Any plastic trees which remain in a good condition may be suitable for reuse.
