Household Waste

Mobility scooters

Mobility scooters are not accepted in your local council’s kerbside recycling bin, bag or box or residual bin or at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.

If the scooter is in good / fair condition these can be recycled by going back to where they were purchased from.

Some NHS Trusts also accept them.

You may want to consider donating it to a local charity, charity shop or community organisation.


  • 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.
