Household Waste

Coal and wood ash

Coal and wood ash cannot be accepted in your local council’s kerbside recycling bin, bag or box.

Coal and wood ash (cold) can be placed in your local council’s kerbside residual bin for disposal.

Wood ash is also excellent for placing around the garden as a soil improver, as it contains valuable minerals, or place it in your compost bin or heap, in small quantities.


  • Most household waste types can be recycled or disposed of at local Household Waste Recycling Centres.
  • If you have a question about a type of household waste call Tel: 0151 255 1444 or email: to check before travelling to a Centre.
