Dispose

A limited number of window panes and frames 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 window panes and frames on the street, other land or beside a communal bin is illegal fly-tipping.

Wrapping paper

Reuse As much as possible
Recycle

In your household recycling. Standard wrapping paper or tissue can be recycled in your household recycling, communal recycling bins or at the Household Waste Recycling Sites.

Do the scrunch test - if when you scrunch it up, it stays scrunched, then it is paper and can be recycled. If it bounces back it is plastic and/or foil and cannot be recycled.
