You can take most household waste and recycling items to Raynesway. Before you visit, double check our waste and recycling A-Z.
Recycling and waste should be deposited in the appropriate bay. Once waste has been deposited it becomes the responsibility of the operators. To maximise recycling, reuse, composting and recovery of waste, we don’t allow items to be taken away by other parties.
You can dispose of limited amounts of home DIY waste at Raynesway. This includes:
and/or one of the following:
Visitors who reach these maximum amounts must wait one week before making return visits.
Residents making excessive numbers of trips with large volumes of waste may be turned away from the site.
If you are planning major refurbishment work to your house or garden, or carrying out a house clearance we recommend you hire a skip as part of the project. Alternatively, a commercial bulky waste collection may be suitable. If using a private waste removal service (man with a van) please ensure they are licenced to carry waste. If your waste ends up fly-tipped, you could be liable for prosecution.
Residents visiting to deposit volumes of waste unlikely to have been generated by a private household or making excessive numbers of trips with large volumes of waste, may be turned away from the site. Please contact the Raynesway site either in person or by calling 01332 755482 before you visit to make sure they can accept your material. Please note that the phone is not always manned.
As a guide, we will accept:
Most recycling and waste can be taken to Raynesway but there are a few items that we can’t accept.
Raynesway is for Derby residents using a private vehicle to dispose of household recycling and waste. Vans and pick-up trucks must be under 3.5 tonnes and we only accept domestic type trailers which are less than 2m long. Larger vehicles or trailers are not permitted on site.
