Did you know that ceramics – like bowls, cups, jugs, plates and vases can’t be recycled in the same way as common glass bottles and jars, like those used for food and drinks?

If you need to get rid of any broken ceramics, please place them inside your bag or bin for non-recyclable waste. Please wrap these safely in old newspaper or kitchen roll, or double-bag them, to ensure our collection crews aren’t harmed when collecting them.

You may also take broken ceramics to your local recycling centre.

If your ceramics aren’t broken and you no longer need or want them – why not take them to a charity shop so that others may use them?
