Yes, bathroom suites can be recycled at some out of home recycling points - find out more below.

How to recycle bathroom suites

  • When sinks, toilets and baths are cracked, badly chipped or generally past their best and cannot be re-purposed or re-sold they can be disposed of at a local household waste recycling centre;

  • If you are using a van check with the recycling centre whether you need any permission or ID to do so. Also check the opening hours, which can vary for cars and vans;

  • Some recycling centres will ask you to put these items into the Hardcore and Rubble skips, while others have skips just for ceramic items;

  • Taps should be removed and placed in the Mixed Metal skips;

  • Check with your local council to see if they provide a collection service for larger, bulky items.

Good to know

Your old bathroom suite can also be re-used or re-purposed, e.g. Belfast Sinks can also be repurposed for planting flowers.

There are markets for second-hand bathroom suites such as Gumtree, FreeCycle, Facebook Market Place and reclamation yards
