Spring Clean at your local Reuse and Recycling Centre

It’s time for Spring cleaning again and a chance to open the windows and clear away the winter cobwebs! It’s also the perfect time to ‘declutter’ the home. In the UK we house on average more than £2,800 worth of clutter in our attics, £585 worth of unused clutter in our spare rooms and £900 of goods in garages. That’s a lot of clutter! However after a ‘sort through’ why not take all of your unwanted items to your local recycling and reuse centre?

In Warwickshire we have a network of nine recycling centres each with their own reuse shops that provide a wide range of reuse, recycling and waste disposal opportunities. You will be surprised with what you can take to the reuse and recycling centres. Generally if it is from your house or garden you can donate it for reuse, to be recycled or possibly used for energy recovery.

The recycling centres take an increasing range of standard materials for recycling and in recent years the range has increased dramatically and includes items such as carpets, mattresses, cooking oil, textiles, rags, shoes, and electrical items.

For a full list of items that can be recycled at your nearest centre, visit www.warwickshire.gov.uk/HWRC and select the relevant page.

Residents are also reminded that from 1st April to 30th September extended summer opening times will apply, offering greater flexibility with a late night opening on Wednesday until 6:15pm (excluding Stockton and Shipston). All recycling centres (excluding Shipston) are open until 5:45pm over the weekend.
