Find your nearest household waste and recycling centre

Recycling centres have reopened after a temporary suspension in response to COVID-19 and are currently operating on a reduced service.

Please view latest service update for more information, including booking appointments for larger vehicles and disposing of paint and chemicals.

From 10 August larger vehicles and trailers carrying household waste will be able to access the Household Waste & Recycling Centres. You must book an appointment to visit a Household Waste and Recycling Centre if you are:

  • arriving in a larger vehicle or trailer
  • bringing paint or chemicals in any vehicle (Hazlehead is the only site that can accept these materials)
  • Cars and small vans can continue to access the sites without a booking but will still require to bring proof of address.

    For more information and to book an appointment at a household Waste and Recycling Centre.

    Note: making a booking does not give priority and you may still need to queue if the site is busy when you arrive.
