Civic Amenity Sites (Tip)

What can I take to the Centres?

The table below identifies what householders and small businesses can take to the Civic Amenity and Recycling Centres and whether a charge applies.

To help us to recycle as much as possible, please sort your waste and recycling at home and place it in the appropriate containers at the Centres. Please ask an attendant for help with manual handling and advice if necessary.

 

All items highlighted in green are reused or recycled.
