A-Z of how to recycle or dispose of your household waste

Have your say on Nottinghamshire Recycling Centres

Each year we hold a customer satisfaction survey at all of our Recycling Centres. If you missed the chance to have your say in person, let us know what you think in our online survey.

There are a whole host of items that can be recycled or disposed of at our Recycling centres. In many cases small amounts can be recycled by the collections from your home or at local recycling banks.

There are also some items that cannot be taken to the recycling centres, but needs specialist disposal, such as asbestos.
