Upholstered furniture waste must be kept separate from other types of waste.

There are dedicated skips at Pottery Street and Craigmuschat Recycling Centres for the disposal of these items.

When disposing of upholstered furniture at our Recycling Centres, where possible please keep the item in one piece. Securely cover and wrap any ripped, torn or exposed areas to reduce the risk of potential pollutants entering the environment.

Please place upholstered furniture in the appropriate collection skip.

If you require advice, please speak to one of our attendants.
