Tuesday 30 January

Please be aware of changes to Recycling Centres in Perth and Kinross from February 1st 2024.

We are writing to inform you of upcoming changes to the ways Waste Upholstered Domestic Seating (WUDS) are disposed of.

WUDS include

  • Sofas/Sofa beds
  • Armchairs
  • Kitchen and dining room chairs
  • Stools and foot stools (upholstered)
  • Home office chairs
  • Futons, bean bags and, floor and sofa cushions
  • Electrical recliner chairs

This list includes any part made of or containing leather, synthetic leather, other fabric, or foam.

What does this change mean

From 1 February 2024, bulky waste and WUDS should simply be deposited in separate skips, where space allows, at 7 out of 9 Recycling Centres in Perth and Kinross. This means if you wish to dispose of WUDS you will need to put them into the WUDS skip rather than the Bulky Waste skip as before. 

All attendants at Recycling Centres are aware of this change and can offer guidance where necessary.

WUDS and Bulky/ Bagged Waste can be disposed of at nearly all Recycling Centres, with the following exceptions from 1 February 2024:

  • Auchterarder - WUDS will not be accepted here and will be redirected to Crieff Recycling Centre (black bag and Bulky Waste will still be accepted).
  • Bankfoot - WUDS and Bulky Waste will not be accepted and will be redirected to Inveralmond Recycling Centre (black bag waste will still be accepted).
