Other recycling

There are lots of items that can be recycled even though they can’t go in your recycling sack at home. You can recycle the items below at specific locations across Westminster:

Church Street library operates a Terracycle scheme and can accept the following items for recycling:

  • crisp packets
  • bread bags
  • pringles tubes

Bulky items can be either taken to the Household Waste Recycling Centre at Smugglers Way, or you can arrange a bulky waste collection.

If you’re not sure how to dispose of something, please visit the council’s A-Z of recycling, which covers a wide range of items.

Remember that if your item is still in good working order then it’s best to try and donate it to a local charity shop.

We will be organising a swap event for residents during 2022. Check this page for details as they appear.
