Recycling Centres for Householders

Recycling CentreHousehold waste that is not collected as part of the kerbside recycling service can be sorted and taken to Household Waste and Recycling Centres.  To better manage waste for recycling, recovery or final disposal, these sites have been improved.   Of the waste taken to our Household Waste Recycling Centres a large percentage is recycled. We have more information on our performance page.
