Shelving is not accepted in your local council's kerbside residual or recycling bin, or bag. Shelving can be recycled at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.
If the item of furniture is in a good condition it may be able to be reused - try using online re-use / selling. Alternatively, if it is in a reasonable condition, unwanted furniture will be accepted and sometimes collected by charity shops. Have a look in a telephone directory or search online for a full list of your local charity shops. There are re-use shops at Old Swan and South Sefton Recycling Centres. Furniture can also be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre, and your local Council also offers a service for bulky household waste.
