For your recycling not your rubbish!
There are 25 Neighbourhood
Recycling Centres (NRCs), and two Household Waste
Recycling Centres (HWRCs) situated across the
Borough. NRCs are open 365 days a year.
Please leave NRCs in a clean and tidy condition
by following these guidelines:
- Flatten your cardboard
- Put your recycling inside the banks provided
- Place only plastic types 1 (PETE) and 2 (HDPE) in the
plastic recycling container
- Crush your plastics
- If banks are full do not leave your recycling on
the floor, call the Helpline and
they can arrange for it to be emptied
- No household rubbish please

You can contribute to making sure that NRCs are kept clean
and tidy by contacting the Council when bins are nearly
full to overflowing or the site is littered, and by picking up
small amounts of rubbish if you wish. For more information and
to receive the appropriate equipment, please call the
Helpline on 01992 785577.
