Important changes to storage and disposal of Waste Upholstered Domestic Seating.

There is new legislation for the storage and disposal of upholstered seating, including sofas, chairs and beanbags. Waste Upholstered  Domestic Seating may contain Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs). POPs are chemical substances that do not break down. If waste containing POPs is not managed responsibly, it could cause damage to the wider environment.

To comply with the legislation, at our Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs), Waste upholstered seating must ONLY go into the correct, designated skips at:

  • Halifax HWRC
  • Brighouse HWRC
  • Todmorden HWRC

This type of waste can no longer be accepted at Sowerby Bridge or Elland HWRCs, as there is not enough space for an extra skip.

Waste Upholstered Domestic Seating includes:

  • Sofas, sofa beds and armchairs
  • Upholstered kitchen and dining room chairs
  • Home office chairs
  • Stools and footstools
  • Bean bags, floor or sofa cushions
  • Futons

For further information on this legislation, please see Here or visit Guidance (GOV.UK)
