Permanent drop-off sites

Last updated: 16 March 2021

Find your nearest site for free disposal of household paint, batteries and fluorescent lights

Permanent drop-off sites for paint, batteries and fluorescent lights are typically located at council depots and transfer stations that accept other items like gas bottles, car batteries, motor oil and so on.

Contact your local council for other products you can drop off at permanent sites, or to check disposal fees and opening hours.

Recycling Near You

Planet Ark's Recycling Near You site offers information about the recycling and waste services offered by your council as well as local drop-off options for items including computers, batteries, printer cartridges and mobile phones.



Most of our permanent sites now offer free drop off for unwanted household and trade paint and some related products through Paintback, the national product stewardship scheme.
