A list of items can be found on our A to Z directory of waste (PDF, 122KB) .

Please break up large items such as sofas and armchairs before your visit if they can.

You must book in advance if you want to take a mattress to the sites as there is a limit on the number of mattresses we are able to accept.

  • if you bring a mattress to either site without a booking, you will be turned away
