The commercial recycling centre at Bessemer Close will be closed on Bank Holidays.​ 

Please be aware that the sites are well used over the Bank Holiday weekends, and there is a possibility of queues.  Peak times are between 10am -3pm, so please allow for extra time if you are planning to visit during these times and remember, items cannot be walked onto the sites.

We also offer a collection of large items that cannot be re-used, directly from your property. This service is free for recyclable items, but there is a small charge for items that cannot be recycled.​ Find out about our Bulky Item Collections. 


Take it to the tip.
