Online booking for recycling centres

Both re3 recycling sites are operating on a limited capacity and residents need to book a time slot to use the sites. This is to make sure that safe operation and social distancing can be maintained. 

Please only make a booking if you are no longer able to safely store your waste at home, or if it cannot be disposed of safely by council collections.
