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.

Commercial waste

For a charge you can book an appointment to take certain commercial or business waste to James Road, Tyseley B11 2BA household recycling centre.

You can download the guide and find out more about how to dispose of your commercial or business waste to a household recycling centre.

Recycling banks

Visit the Local Recycling website to find recycling banks near you. Remember you can also put your recycling out for collection or take it to your nearest household recycling centre.

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.
