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.

​What are community recycling centres?

Community recycling centres are facilities where you can drop off unwanted items and materials for reuse and recycling.

Most centres have shops on site, which sell usable household and building materials.

What you can drop off at community recycling centres

Items the centres might accept include:

  • fridges
  • furniture
  • lawnmowers
  • bicycles
  • books
  • timber
  • household bric-a-brac

Some centres also accept green waste and general rubbish. Contact your local community recycling centre directly for more information.
