Extended Opening for Nottinghamshire Recycling Centres

Friday, 1 April 2022

Nottinghamshire Recycling Centres operated by Veolia (Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste and recycling partners) are now operating on summer opening hours.

The Recycling Centres across Nottinghamshire are now open from 8am right through until 8pm every day until Friday 30th September. Residents are encouraged to make the most of the longer opening hours and visit in the evenings when sites are usually quieter.

The four day Easter weekend is traditionally one of the busiest times at the Recycling Centres as DIY enthusiasts set to work on home improvements. The longer opening times will give residents more opportunity to avoid queues and delays.

Lea Hawkes, General Manager for Veolia Nottinghamshire said: “We’re delighted that we can extend the opening hours across all 12 of our Recycling Centres in Nottinghamshire. We hope that the longer opening hours will allow residents to visit a site during the evening which tends to be a quieter time or on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday when visitor numbers are also lower. We would also like to remind residents that they can visit any Recycling Centre within the county as long as they have registered their vehicle(s) via the County Council’s website.”

The Nottinghamshire Recycling Centres accept a wide range of household waste for recycling; including textiles, glass bottles and jars, wood, scrap metal, batteries, garden waste, electrical appliances and even engine oil and cooking oil. On average, the Recycling Centres recycle an impressive 80% of the waste they receive.

Top tips to remember when visiting your local Recycling Centre:

  • Your visit will be quicker if your waste is sorted into types before your visit and will also help us to recycle as much as possible.
  • Don’t forget, you need to be a Nottinghamshire resident and registered to use our Recycling Centres and will be turned away if not. Register for free at:
  • If assistance is needed, please ask a member of staff.
  • Trade waste, commercial waste, or waste from home building projects can’t be taken to the Recycling Centres. You must only take your own personal household waste.
  • Sensible footwear must be worn when visiting the Recycling Centres and waste must be placed into skips carefully to avoid injury.
  • Children and animals must stay in vehicles at all times.
