What we do ...
The Household Waste & Recycling Centre (HWRC) has alternative names such as Civic Amenity Site (CA Site) or the more colloquially used term ‘the ‘Tip’. This may have been an accurate description years ago, where sites were simply places where people could go to, in order to dispose of unwanted household wastes.
Nowadays the site is focussed on minimising the amount of waste going to landfill through a process of reuse, recovery and recycling. This is achieved by the comprehensive use of nominated skips for individual waste streams and dedicated staff to help advise the general public. These centres are there to serve the general public and the local area by allowing people to directly deposit waste in designated skips before the waste is taken to a variety of recyclers or reprocessors to be treated or put to beneficial use responsibly and legally Our site certainly can claim that the vast majority of waste is either re-used recycled or recovered with almost 90% of wastes received currently diverted away from landfill.
