Sign with Household Waste Recycling Centre written on it

Making the most of your local Household Recycling Centre (HRCs)

Most HRCs can recycle paper, glass and plastics (just like your kerbside service) but you can take much more than that to your local HRC.

Neil from Belfast City Council wants you to S.O.R.T before you head to the HRC

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.

Use the Recycling Locator below to find out where to take items that aren’t picked-up in your weekly collection.
