Saltaire Recycling Units
Saltaire also has local recyling units on the car park located where Exhibiton Road meets Saltaire Road. These units take paper, tins and foil and mixed glass.

Recycling serviceable furniture and white goods

  • CHAS (Catholic Housing Aid Society) use any money they raise from the sale of second hand furniture to finance their housing advice service, helping people who are homeless or facing eviction or debt problems. Despite the name they are totally non-denominational and do a great job but can be a bit choosy about furniture. Obviously upholstery has to be fire-resistant and must have the labels to confirm this, but they do also take cookers, fridges, washers, TVs as well as furniture. Telephone: 01274 731909
  • Windhill Community Furniture Store do similar things and are linked to the local community centre. Telephone: 01274 593196 Website:
