Household Waste


Carpets cannot be recycled using your local council’s kerbside recycling bin, bag or box.

*Carpet Recycling Suspended : Unfortunately due to a change in law, from Tuesday 8th June 2021, carpet recycling is currently suspended at Household Waste Recycling Centres in Merseyside and Halton.

Carpets and underlay can still be disposed of at Household Waste Recycling Centres, please follow guidance from site staff. We are working closely with the regulators and carpet reprocessors to reinstate carpet recycling as soon as possible.
