Household Waste Recycling Centres

Sites will re-open from Monday 18th May but will be subject to social distancing.  Telephone booking is now available but call volumes are exceptionally high - please bear with us or consider calling back later.

Booking is essential to access the sites and queues are likely. You will not be allowed onsite without your booking reference.

To book your timeslot call 01908 252811.  We will ask you for the registration number of the vehicle you plan to use, type of waste you are bringing, which site you wish to visit and your email address so we can email you the appointment information - please ensure you have read the additional information below.

Please note: Residents are not permitted to bring trailers onto the sites due to time slot and space restrictions.

The sites are open for essential visits only, so residents can dispose of harmful waste that cannot be stored at home safely. Please only bring waste that you are able to handle yourself as our staff are unable to assist at the current time.

What else can I do with my waste?

For your own safety and the safety of others, only visit if it is essential.

Please help us by:

If you are having a large clear out or are doing some home DIY during the COVID-19 pandemic, hiring a skip or a third-party collection company to remove the waste might be a safer option. Please make sure it is a legitimate company with a waste carriers licence.

You can book your timeslot at one of our three sites by calling 01908 25 28 11
