Recycling facilities

The following privately-owned local facilities recycle green waste, timber waste, white goods and PVC waste. These facilities are only licensed to accept certain items, and do not accept mixed loads. Charges may apply.

Benefits of using recycling facilities

There are many reasons why you should take items that can be recycled to a recycling facility, including:

  • The material will be processed and made into usable mulch, construction materials or compost, so that the carbon content is returned to the soil instead of going to landfill and escaping into the atmosphere. This ultimately results in less greenhouse gas emissions.
  • You can take your garden and timber waste to these facilities for free if you use your green and timber waste disposal vouchers.
  • Taking your waste to landfill can cost you money.
  • For many residents, the following recycling facilities are closer to travel to than the landfill.
