Crockery (plates, mugs, bowls, plant pots)

Find out how to reduce, reuse and recycle crockery.


Before thinking about reuse, recycling or disposal options for your crockery, have you considered whether it could be repaired?

There are several repair cafes and groups in Suffolk who offer free help to local communities. Please visit the repair cafes page to find out more.


Offer items in good condition to charity shops or through an online re-use network.

Sell through a car boot sale, jumble sale, or online market. Offer unwanted items to friends, neighbours or relatives.

You can also take old or unwanted gently used items to any Suffolk Recycling Centre and to put them in the orange re-use containers at site. These items can then be used to support local charities.


If they are chipped, broken, or otherwise beyond re-use, please take them to any Suffolk Recycling Centre and place in the bin for hardcore and rubble. There is no charge for disposing of these materials.
