Household Waste Recycling Centre tours - Please note that we are unable to provide Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) tours to nurseries, schools and community groups. Health and Safety guidelines require Waste Services to close the HWRC's during the visits and provide Councillors and residents with prior notification. Residents who attend the HWRC's during the visits must wait until the sites are reopened before they can dispose of their waste. This has caused traffic congestion outside of the sites and inconvenience to HWRC users.
