Community Recycling Centres

Community Recycling Centres are drop off centres for common household problem wastes that can’t be collected via the council kerbside system. Problem wastes are materials like paint, gas bottles, batteries and oils. Community Recycling Centres for these materials are being established across the New England and North West region. At these centres you can drop your problem wastes off for free.
