Plastic toys (hard plastic)

Can they be recycled?

Hard plastic toys can’t be recycled from home, but some tips (household waste and recycling centres) will collect them for recycling.

To find out where your nearest tip is use our recycling locator tool or head on over to our services at a glance area, find your borough and scroll down to the map at the bottom of the page. To be safe, give the tip a call, or check their website before heading over to make sure they accept this type of item.

If your toys are in good condition, instead of recycling them, you could donate them to a charity shop or give them away for free on OlioFreecycle or Gumtree.
