Find out how to reduce, reuse and recycle a petrol lawnmower.


Before thinking about reuse, recycling or disposal options for your petrol lawnmower, 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.


Petrol lawnmowers in good condition could be offered to charity shops or through an online re-use network. Find your nearest charity shop.

You might also be able to sell lawnmowers through a car boot sale, jumble sale, or online market.

If it is in good condition, it can also be taken to any Suffolk Recycling Centre and placed in the re-use container (ask site staff for details).


You can recycle petrol lawnmowers in the metal container at any Suffolk Recycling Centre. Please make sure that the petrol tank is completely empty before recycling.
