Due to short-notice implementation of new legislation relating to waste containing certain types of polluting materials, from 1 January 2023 upholstered domestic seating can no longer be sent to landfill for disposal.
While our Household Waste Recycling Centres make the necessary arrangements to manage this change, they will be unable to accept such material between 1 January and 23 January.
This affects disposal of:
Sofas and armchairs
Sofa beds and futons
Kitchen and dining room chairs
Stools and foot stools
Home office chairs
Bean bags, floor and sofa cushions
We recognise that this will be disruptive for the public and apologise for the inconvenience this will cause. We are working hard with our contractors, partners and other agencies to improve the situation.
The changes to the law may also affect bulky waste collection services managed by your district council. Check their websites for details.
