Household Waste Recycling Centres
There are five Household Waste Recycling Centres in the city where you can take a wide variety of materials for recycling. See the table below for more information, including links to the locations on a map.
Please note that Grove Nursery Household Waste Recycling Centre in Hazlehead has an entrance barrier in place with a vehicle height restriction of 2.1 metres (6ft 10in). If you are taking a larger vehicle in, you will have to wait a few minutes for the barrier to be moved.
You can drop off unwanted furniture, bikes and sports equipment at the Reuse container at Grove Recycling Centre.
The use of Household Waste Recycling Centres for the disposal of business and trade waste (including builders' waste) is illegal. Staff will turn away any commercial vehicles attempting to enter the sites. All van drivers will be asked to complete a disclaimer form to state that they are bringing only household waste to the sites. We will use the forms to help analyse use of the Household Waste Recycling Centres and identify any misuse by businesses.
