New rules for disposing of sofas/chairs/upholstery

From 1st January 2023, any item of upholstered domestic seating will no longer be accepted at landfill and must be destroyed through incineration (due to the potential of containing Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs)).

To comply with this Environment Agency guidance we need to make changes to how this waste is collected and disposed/treated.

These items must now be separated into a different skip at the Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs), if you are unsure, please speak to a member of staff.

Please note: Our HWRCs can accept this type of upholstered domestic seating at all sites
