Where can you dispose of your waste in Richmond?

You have a few options for rubbish disposal in Richmond. The first is Richmond Council’s waste collection service. This is available for all residents in the area, however there are some limitations on the types of waste that are accepted. 

Local recycling centres are also provided by the council. These typically accept materials like paper, glass, metal, and select plastics.

Private rubbish removal companies are a great option for larger or specialised items not covered by the council’s services, or that cannot be transported to recycling facilities. They also offer the benefit of additional flexibility, which council waste collection services are unable to offer. 

Items of decent condition should be donated to local charities or second-hand shops in order to reduce waste. For hazardous household waste, such as chemicals or unwanted/damaged electronics, designated collection points or council-organised events are provided.
