Downsizing? 5 Essentials for an Easier Move


Making the most of your local Household Recycling Centre near you. 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.

What Can You Take to the Local HRC?

Far more household objects than you might have imagined can find a new lease of life at a Household Recycling Centre.

If your rubbish bin is overflowing with leftovers, vegetable peelings, and tea bags, why not put it on a diet? It’s easy to do. Recycling your food waste instead of putting it in the bin only takes a little effort and is an easy way to help protect the environment and save your local council money they can spend on local services.
