How to dispose of wood.

A pile of planks of wood

Do not dispose of wood at home. Take this waste to your local recycling centre (RC).

  • Which RC container

    Use the wood container.

  • Which RC accept this waste

    All our recycling centres accept wood.

  • Further information

    Blue or red pallets cannot be disposed of at RCs. The dye used to colour the pallets is toxic which means they cannot be recycled. Also, because they are company owned and rented out, they are commercial waste. Blue pallets, known as CHEP or GKN CHEP pallets, are owned by CHEP. Red pallets are owned by LPR.

  • Need more information?

    Ask a member of staff at the centre or contact Waste Management Services on 01243 642106.
