Community recycling centres

Our aim with community recycling centres is to reduce waste to landfill by reusing, re-purposing and recycling as much as possible.

All Community Recycling Centres are open but with contact tracing, restricted services, physical distancing, and cashless payment required.

Items the centres might accept include:

  • fridges
  • furniture
  • lawnmowers
  • bicycles
