Shropshire Council

HRC information

Given Shropshire's current tier 2 high alert status, we ask that residents think carefully about whether they need to visit our HRC sites, and to make full use of the existing kerbside recycling and waste collection services which will continue as normal. If you do need to visit the sites please remember that strict rules remain in place to safeguard the public and members of staff. Bulky collections will also continue as normal. We will continue to follow government advice to ensure the health and safety of the public.

Household recycling centres (HRCs) are provided for local residents to drop off a wide range of recycling and items which are too big for the collection service. They're open from 9am-5pm everyday. Use our 'Household recycling centres' page to find your nearest.

Please note that it's an offence under Section 34 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 to bring waste from a business into these sites.

There are separate containers for recycling at all of the sites, so to help us maximise recycling and minimise congestion please separate your recycling before you come to the site.  You can recycle 30 different types of material at our HRCs.

For local residents visiting the site in a car there are no restrictions on access. However entry permits are required for vans and commercial type vehicles and for most types of trailers.

Asbestos

If you are planning to bring household asbestos into any of the sites you must contact us in advance.

Construction waste

We only accept small amounts of construction waste (from domestic DIY activities only).  If you are carrying out building work or producing large amounts of waste you will need to hire a skip.  Only small quantities of DIY waste will be accepted on site (no more than 0.5 Metres cubed per month) or the equivalent of a small car boot. If there are any quantities over this amount then it is not classed as general household waste and you should hire a skip to dispose of the waste. This is often an easier option to avoid lengthy unloading times at the recycling centre. Site attendants will refuse entry if the quantity is deemed too large.
