Non-recyclable waste

Find out how to reduce and dispose non recyclable waste.


For information on how to reduce or re-use non-recyclable items see the reduce and reuse page.


Non - recyclable waste that cannot be reduced, re-used or recycled can be placed in your:

  • Household rubbish bin. If you have any issues or questions about your bins please contact your local district or borough council
  • You can take excess rubbish or items that are too large to fit in your household rubbish bin to any Suffolk Recycling Centre and place them in the non-recyclable container.

Electrical and electronic items

Electrical and electronic items should not be thrown away in the rubbish bin. Electrical and electronic items contain hazardous materials and precious metals and should be recycled properly. For re-use and recycling advice on electricals see "Large electrical appliances" or "Small electrical items".

Large non-recyclable items

If you cannot get the item to a Recycling Centre, your local district or borough council offers a charged bulky waste collection service.

There are restrictions on some non-recyclable items at the Recycling Centres, so please check before taking items to a site.
