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.
