Wood ash is recyclable.  You can dispose of wood ash by:

  • putting it in your brown garden waste bin (find out how to request this service)
  • take to one of our recycling centres or recycle with garden waste
  • add to your home composting bin
  • use as a soil fertiliser.

Ash from coal or anthracite can be put in your black waste bin it has little or no nutritional benefit and its potentially harmful to soil, plants and consumers of edible produce. Please wait until it is cold before you put in your bin.
