We recommend shredding anything with personal details on before disposing of it.


Books can be donated to a charity shop, your local supermarket's community section or sold online.

Books are accepted at most household waste recycling centres for reuse.

Wrapping paper

When recycling wrapping paper, make sure any ribbons or bows are removed. If you're not sure whether it can be recycled, remember the scrunch test. If it scrunches it can be recycled!

Commercial or business paper and shredding is not accepted at any household waste recycling centre. It should be taken to a transfer station.
