How to recycle a bathroom suite
When sinks, toilets and baths are cracked, badly chipped or generally past their best and cannot be re-purposed or re-sold they can be disposed of at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC), otherwise known as 'the tip'.
- If you are using a van to transport your bathroom suites or furniture so check with the recycling centre whether you need any permission or ID to do so. Also check the opening hours, which can vary for cars and vans.
- Some recycling centres will ask you to put these items into the Hardcore and Rubble skips, while others have skips just for ceramic items.
- Taps should be removed and placed in the Mixed Metal skips.
- Check with your council to see if they provide a collection service for larger, bulky items.
