Recycle, reuse or dispose
- Book a bulky waste collection or contact us to book a DIY waste collection. View costs.
- Take it to a local household waste and recycling centre (tip) - if you will be using a car with a trailer, a van or other commercial vehicle you need advance authorisation from WRWA. Check queue levels by viewing the WRWA webcam. Note that there are restrictions on the quantity of DIY waste that can be tipped free of charge. See arriving at the reuse and recycling centre in a car, on a motorcycle, bicycle or on foot (WRWA website), or DIY waste delivered in vans (WRWA website).
- If you intend to store DIY material/waste or a skip on the public highway you must apply for skip or material licence in advance.
- If the DIY waste is not from your home, book a collection with a privately operating waste carrier.
