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.

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