Recycling: Locate Centres


Access to Household Recycling Centres

Please accept our apologies if you are experiencing traffic congestion at or around your local Household Recycling Centre (HRC).

The congestion over the last few weeks is a temporary situation that occurs every year when the seasons change and the first initial surge of inputs arrive as residents start to undertake household DIY and gardening activities etc.

We are currently working to improve access to Household Recycling Centres and kindly ask for your patience. In the meantime we advise you to visit your local Household Recycling Centres during the following days/times.

  • Tuesday to Thursday
  • Before 10am and after 3pm weekdays

If you want to know more about recycling, or would like to report any problems with your recycling or refuse collections, the following information can help. Alternatively you can use the button above.
