Household Waste Recycling Centres (Tidy tips)

Pre-sorting waste and last arrival time

It's a good idea to pre-sort your waste and arrive at least 10 minutes before closing time, as waste will not be accepted after 4:50pm.

Keeping sites open during adverse weather

We try and keep our sites open to the public throughout the year, but need to keep the health and safety of both staff and customers’ in mind, particularly during the winter months. Sometimes our tidy tips may have to close at short notice due to bad weather conditions e.g. snow or ice causing slippery surfaces or strong winds causing debris around the site. We will update this page if we need to close a site plus post messages on Facebook (link opens in new window) and Twitter (link opens in new window).
