Every year the amount of rubbish we produce increases. The problem of what to do with the waste we produce is worldwide but the people of Sheffield can make a difference through their own actions.

You can reduce, reuse and recycle at any of our Household Waste Recycling Centres, recycling sites or by donating to local charities such as St Vincent’s.

You can recycle paper, card, glass, cans and plastic bottles by using your blue bin and box.

Household waste recycling centres

Sheffield residents can use our Household Waste Recycling Centres to dispose of:

  • garden waste
  • furniture, including sofas, beds and mattresses
  • electrical equipment, including fridges, freezers, TVs, light bulbs and batteries

Recycling sites/points

As well as our large household waste recycling centres we have lots of smaller recycling sites throughout Sheffield located in supermarket car parks, leisure centres and in pub car parks. Veolia provides a map of all the recycling sites in Sheffield.

CCTV operates at these bring sites to monitor misuse for potential enforcement purposes.

Home composting

By composting there is less waste to be disposed of by the local authority and you are providing yourself with a valuable product for your own garden. ‘Garden Organic’ offer some great advice if you want to begin home composting.
