Light bulbs

Recycle Fluorescent tubes and energy saving light bulbs should be taken to either Household Waste Recycling Sites and recycled. They contain small amounts of mercury and hazardous materials so should not be put in your wheelie bin.
Dispose Old style incandescent bulbs are not recyclable and are not hazardous. Please throw them away in your household rubbish.

Lino flooring


Sell or donate locally to a charity shop, or online using Freegle.

The contractor laying a new flooring should be able to take back and remnants.

Dispose We can accept lino at both Household Waste Recycling Sites, but it must be placed in the non-recyclable waste.

Loft insulation

Reuse Consider laying new insulation on top of your old insulation, for additional protection.

Loft insulation can be disposed of at the Household Waste Recycling Sites in the ordinary non-recyclable waste area. 

Please double-bag loft insulation when transporting it, to prevent fibres floating into the air.

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