Household recycling collection
Bricks, building rubble, plasterboard and wood are not collected as part of your local council’s household recycling scheme.
What can you do?
Ask family and friends if they need them for any building projects they have planned
Check locally - a community project near you may have a use for your building bits and pieces
Advertise in local papers, shop windows or on community noticeboards
Arrange for a skip to be delivered to your home to dispose of your building materials by a waste disposal company
