A to Z of Recycling Materials
This facility provides information on where to dispose of materials from your household.
Where possible, the reuse and recycling of materials should always be considered as a preferred option. Other options are also listed if you are unable to use the preferred option.
If a material does not appear, please contact Recycling for advice.
This list will be continually updated with materials and items from residents enquiries.
In some cases it is suggested that you take certain items to a charity shop. This option is provided as a guidance and it is advised that you contact your nearest charity shop to ask whether that item can be accepted. If taking items to a charity shop, please ensure that they are in good condition for re-use. For further information on charity shops in your area, please see the Related Links section.
Recycling Centre for Household Waste
In some cases it is suggested that certain items can be taken to the Recycling Centre for Household Waste (RCHW) in Castle Road, Rayleigh. There are some items that can be taken here to be recycled and other items that can be taken here to be disposed of with the general household waste.
Please be aware that any items disposed of in the general household waste will go to landfill, so please try and reuse or recycle any items where possible, before choosing this option.
