Bricks and tiles are great items to reuse around the home.  If you have no need for them, they can be taken for recycling at various local businesses. Bricks set in softer mortar can be re-used. If bricks have too much cement, and therefore cannot be reused, they can be crushed and used for aggregates, fill or paving sand/gravel.

If your bath, sink or vanity is still in usable condition, consider donating it to the Revolve Store at the Dunmore Resource Recovery Centre or a second hand building supplier in the local area.

You could also try offering it through a local swap network such as Facebook Buy, Swap and Sell.

Metal sinks and baths can be disposed of free of charge at the Community Recycling Centre at Minnamurra Waste & Recycling Facility.  Broken baths and sinks made of other materials can be taken to the Dunmore Resource Recovery Centre for a fee.
