If you have items that you think are reusable, please do not take these to the household recycling centres. Instead visit our Large Item Reuse and Collection page for information on various reuse options in Wiltshire. Alternatively, you may be able to take other items to your local reuse charity or charity shop.
We are currently working with the Repair Academy to trial collecting and reusing unwanted household goods from the Household Recycling Centres. Staff at household recycling centres identify suitable furniture, bric-a-brac and white goods for donation to the Repair Academy.
