Garden sheds

Reuse Sell or donate locally using Freegle and other online platforms. 
Dispose

A limited amount of waste - six small builder’s bags for each household each month - from home improvements or DIY can be disposed of at our Household Waste Recycling Sites.

The recycling sites are for household waste from city residents only.

Business waste will not be accepted. Business waste is any waste from commercial, trade or business activities. This includes any waste from domestic properties used for profit (for example landlords taking waste from a rented property) and waste that is being removed for payment.

Our staff have the right to inspect any waste entering the recycling sites.

If they suspect the waste is business waste the person will be turned away.

Find out more on our business rubbish and recycling page.

Thank you for doing the right thing. Leaving/dumping garden sheds on the street, other land or beside a communal bin is illegal fly-tipping.

Garden waste

Recycle

Can be composted at home in your garden, or recycled at the Household Waste Recycling Sites. Both sites take garden waste, which is composted and turned into soil conditioner and sold at the site. Please remove plastic bags, string and other bindings.

We also run a fortnightly garden waste collection service

Japanese knotweed

This weed cannot be taken to either of the recycling centres under any circumstances.

Disposal requires a professional specialist due to the extremely aggressive nature of the weed. For more information on the disposal of this weed please visit the Environment Agency’s Japanese knotweed page.

These remain the property of the producer and should be returned to where you bought them from. Some companies, such as Calor, will pay for returned cylinders.

If your gas bottle has no markings on it and you don't know where you got it from then you can take it to Hove recycling site.
