Household recycling centres (Council tips)
Before you visit one of our household recycling centres, consider donating to a reuse charity
If you have furniture that is clean, in a reasonable and reusable condition it may be suitable to donate.
The ReUsers shop adjacent to the recycling centre at Norris Way, Sutton Coldfield provides a place to donate your unwanted items that are too good to throw away.
CT Furniture is a charity that will collect items free of charge from residents across the West Midlands. Reusing helps the environment as well as being a great way to benefit the local community.
Freegle is a UK organisation that aims to increase reuse and reduce landfill by offering a free Internet-based service where people can both, give away and ask for things that would otherwise be thrown away.

You cannot take any commercial or business waste to a household recycling centre. We may inspect any waste and may refuse to accept where there is a doubt about its origin.
On-street recycling banks are being removed across Birmingham, as they attract fly-tipping. We are working with partner organisations to see if they would be willing to host recycling facilities in appropriate locations.
