Find out how to reduce, reuse and recycle umbrellas.


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


If you have a useable umbrella that you don't want, take it to your nearest charity shop and give someone else the opportunity to keep dry!


If it is beyond repair, then you can recycle it in the metal bin at any Suffolk Recycling Centre.
