Search for an item to recycle, repair, reuse or dispose of

What to do with your old mattress, paint, or any other household item? Use Waste Wizard

Use our waste wizard search to find out:

  • other ways you can repair, reuse or recycle household items
  • whether your item can be collected by your district council and which bin to put it in
  • the types of waste we accept at a household waste recycling centre.
Warning You need to type in your postcode with a space, for example, OX1 1ND. You only need to do this the first time you use the wizard.

Your postcode is saved as a cookie on your computer, making it quicker next time. We use your postcode to give you local information.

How the search results are organised

Reusing or repairing items appear first in the list as these are better options for the environment.

Next, you'll see whether your district council collects the item for recycling or disposal.

Household waste recycling centre information appears at the end of the list.
