Closure of Wedal Road Recycling Centre - Formal decision history

Please try to separate as much of your waste to recycle as possible. Our recycling attendants on site may ask you what is in closed waste bags and ask you to separate waste if a recycling skip is available.​

There is no longer a rubble and scrap metal skip available on site.​  Any rubble and/or scrap should be taken to Lamby Way or Bessemer Close recycling centre. These items cannot be placed in the general waste skip.

There are recycling facilities for mattresses and carpets at this site.

Household Waste​

  • General household waste – There is plenty of opportunity to recycle a large variety of things at the recycling centre.  Please separate out as much recyclable materials from your waste as possible before visiting to make sure a limited amount is being placed in this skip.  General household waste should be a last resort.
