Recycling centres are open every day of the year except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. The opening times vary depending on the time of year:
January and February: 8am to 4pm
March: 8am to 6pm
April to September: 8am to 8pm
October: 8am to 6pm
November and December: 8am to 4pm
Taking your separated recyclables to the sites will reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. Rubbish you can take:
Paper and cardboard
Plasterboard – All except Mansfield
Paint – (Calverton and Worksop only)
Cooking oil – (Beeston, Calverton, Hucknall, Kirkby, Newark, West Bridgford, Warsop and Worksop)
Fridges and freezers – due to a reclassification of the foam in fridges and freezers, most local scrap yards are not allowed to take them for disposal. The local recycling centres however will still accept these items free of charge for disposal.
Recycling Centre Permits
Household Waste Recycling Centre permits are issued to help stop illegal disposal of trade waste along with other issues. The scheme is designed to reduce congestion, improve health and safety and increase recycling.
Permits are available free of charge for Nottinghamshire households wishing to deposit household waste and small amounts of construction waste from their own home.
Residents wishing to use a company van, pick-up or a company car with a trailer will be required to provide a copy of their company insurance and a company letter (as evidence that you are permitted to use the vehicle for personal use) and a copy of a utility bill dated within the last six months (as evidence of residency).
You can now apply for a van, pick-up or trailer permit online. If you do not have internet access, you can call the Customer Service Centre or visit the Customer Service Points where an advisor will use the online service to input your details on your behalf.

Community Repaint Scheme
Paint tins should never be thrown out with regular rubbish. Unless the tins are empty or contain only solid paint. Liquid paint can cause problems when it mixes with other rubbish and can spill onto roads.
