You can take boilers to a Recycling Centre if you have installed a new boiler yourself in your own property and need to dispose of the old one.
If your new boiler is installed by a tradesperson, it is their legal responsibility to dispose of your old boiler and a payment for this service should be included in the cost of the work. You should also make sure that the tradesperson holds a valid Waste Carrier's Licence and provides details of where the waste will be taken to for disposal.
Please note: a permit system is in operation for household waste taken to recycling centres in a van, pick-up, car-towed trailer or sign written vehicle. However, you will not be permitted to dispose of waste that is connected to your sign written vehicle even if it is your own household waste e.g. boilers from a vehicle advertising plumbing/heating services.
Please note: If you are hiring a van to transport your own household waste, temporary access can be arranged by calling the Customer Service Centre at least 48 hours before your planned visit.
Alternatively, you could hire a skip or contact your district council who may offer a chargeable bulky waste collection.
