How and where to recycle sawdust, including sawdust containing animal waste.

Sawdust can be recycled in your brown garden waste bin, or taken to your nearest recycling site and put in the garden waste container.

Sawdust produced from MDF, chipboard or other treated timber should be bagged up and put in your grey rubbish bin.

Sawdust containing animal waste should be put in your grey rubbish bin.
