Our Household Recycling Centres (HRC's) are located at Hortonwood 50 and Halesfield 1. View more information about the changes to HRC's.
Both are open seven days a week from 9am to 5pm, and are only closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day. They are open for all other bank holidays.
Don't forget that we have a kerbside collection for all cardboard, paper, plastic bottles, plastic tubs and trays, tins, glass, batteries (not car) and energy saving light bulbs.
Please help us to recycle as much as possible by separating your items before you visit the site. If you bring black bags of mixed rubbish then staff on site may sort through the bags to make sure we are recycling as much as possible and therefore stopping unnecessary amounts of recycling going to landfill.
