We are calling on residents to “spring clean your shed” this Summer

What’s lurking in the back of your shed?

  • A sad-looking strimmer?
  • A dirty deckchair?
  • Furniture falling apart?
  • Pots in pieces?

With 40% of people living in the UK saying that would like to renovate their sheds to a space they could use for themselves* and 34% of us saying they have spent more time in their garden since buying a shed*, now is the perfect time to ‘Spring Clean your Shed’ and help us meet our recycling targets at the same time.

We are calling on all residents to ‘spring clean your shed’ with our Meet and Greet team at the three HRC’s at Slag Lane, Chanters and Kirkless ready and waiting to direct you to the right recycling bays to ensure that all the unwanted items that clutter up sheds across the Borough are recycled or disposed of in the right way.
