Recycling bring sites

We currently have 32 bring sites around the District where you can recycle glass, paper, cans, plastic, textiles, shoes and books. Our online list of sites will tell you:

  • Where each of the sites is located; and
  • what type of waste each site will accept.

Although all of our recycling banks are emptied on a regular basis, at certain times of the year, such as Christmas, recycling centres are much busier. If you do find the banks are full please don't leave items at the side or on top of them. As well as being unsightly, broken glass could cause injury to people and animals.

You can also use your postcode to find your nearest recycling site on the Recycle Now website.

Beverage cartons (Tetrapaks) and disposable coffee cups

Plastic lined paper cups can now be recycled at the three bring sites in our district that also recycle food and drink cartons. 

The bring banks at Hillam Community Centre and Ulleskelf playing fields now accept paper cups which are used for hot drinks such as tea and coffee in high street coffee shops, fast food outlets and supermarkets. 

Please make sure the cups are empty before recycling them.
