Making the most of your local Household Recycling Centre

You local council has a number of Household Recycling Centres (HRCs). Most can recycle paper, glass and plastics (just like your kerbside service) but you can take much more than that to your local HRC.

This campaign is supported by our partners in the, Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs.

♻️ Sort your items at home into the different recycling types.

♻️ Organise items in your car to speed things up at the HRC.

♻️ Recycle your items in the correct containers. You can no longer use the general waste/landfill skips. All waste must be separated.

♻️ Talk to the Recycling Operatives (like Neil ?) if you have any questions about recycling.
