Pots and Pans

Can they be recycled?

Pots and pans can’t be recycled from home, but if they’re in good condition, you can donate them to charity or pass them on using platforms like Olio, Freecycle or Gumtree, to name just a few. If they’re beyond use, recycle them at your local household waste recycling centre.  

Find out where your nearest centre is using 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. If you can’t get there, you’ll need to throw them in your rubbish bin.
