Fire extinguishers are not accepted in your kerbside collection. Only fire extinguishers from households will be accepted at your local recycling centre. Fire extinguishers must be fully discharged and placed in the metal container.
Fireworks and explosives
Do not take any ammunition or explosives to a recycling centre; they will not be accepted. Tell the police about explosives and ammunition as soon as possible.
Unused fireworks can be hazardous. Soak them in a container of water and contact the manufacturer for advice, or call us on 0345 603 7625.
Some local councils accept foil as part of their home recycling collections.
