Have you got large items to be removed which could be recycled?

Some shops are currently closed, do not leave your items outside the shop as this is fly-tipping.

Many items we throw away haven't reached the end of their useful life. Why dispose of an item when someone else could re-use it? There are a number of organisations in Gloucester that take bulky household items that are in good condition and conforming with fire regulations.

You could contact one of the organisations below to see if they could recycle your unwanted items.
