Reduce, reuse and recycle

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. For further information on types of bins please see 'yourr bins'.

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 offer a map of all the recycling sites in Sheffield.

Household waste recycling centres

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. 

Real nappies

We have teamed up with the Sheffield Nappy Guru to provide discounts, advice and support for parents investing in real nappies.

Rubbish reduction

Disposable nappies can take up half the bin each week. For a family with just one baby, real nappies can help you manage your waste and reduce your environmental impact.

Just in Sheffield each year we estimate over 15,000 tonnes of nappy waste is produced.

Nappy Support

A £10 contribution, from ourselves is available for residents of Sheffield who purchase Real Nappies through the Sheffield Real Nappy Network, as long as you can say yes to all of the following:

  • you order a minimum of £30 worth of nappies before discount and not including any other sundry products
  • the nappies are for a child under the age of 12 months
  • you can only make one claim per child
  • you live in the Sheffield area and are liable for Council Tax to us
