Reduce

Where possible consider repairing broken items. 

Reuse

Before you throw anything away why not see if it can be reused or upcycled. There are lots of ways this can be done: 

Reuse shop 

Staffordshire recycling centres have a reuse area where items in good condition can be donated where they will be taken to the reuse shop located on the Cannock Recycling Centre. 

Charity shops

Charity shops accept a wide variety of items. Please contact your local charity shop for more information on what they can accept. A number of charities in Staffordshire will happily collect your unwanted large household items if they are in good condition. 

Reuse networks

Reuse networks such as Freecycle, Freegle and Ecobees allow members to advertise goods for reuse or sharing through local groups and forums. Membership and advertising is free and everything offered must also be free. 

Sell

There are a variety of online selling arenas, such as ebay. Other options are advertising in the local paper, or news agent’s window. If you have quite a few items why not consider a car boot sale? 

Upcycle it

How about being creative and turning an old item into something stylish?  

Recycle (restrictions apply)

You can take up to 1 cubic metre (1m3), broadly equivalent to a load that can be brought to the recycling centre in a family car, every six months.

Your local council also offers a bulky waste collection. Check your local council for further information and charges.

For restricted waste, residents may be required to complete a ‘disclaimer form’ to declare that the waste is from their household, has not arisen as a result of commercial use and to acknowledge that a limit applies to the quantities of waste they are entitled to deposit at the recycling centre.
