Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC)

Refurbishment of Household Waste Recycling Centres

New webcams have been installed and are operational at both Stock Road and Leigh Marshes. Check the best time to visit by viewing the webcam on Veolia's website (please allow time for the page to load).

If you visit the Household Waste Recycling Centres you will notice some exciting improvement works which are taking place that will provide a better recycling and customer experience. During this period the sites will continue to be open as usual.

The improvements will include:

  • reducing waiting times
  • Increased on-site parking
  • Increased recycling provision
  • Revamped site signage and line marking 
Additionally, both sites will be equipped with new CCTV cameras and ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) in order to monitor the frequency of visits by all vehicles, to help identify unauthorised business waste and for the prevention of crime.

A new re-use scheme in partnership with a local charity will be provided. This will include a shop on the Stock Road site to sell items back to the community and a reuse collection service from Leigh Marshes.

The sites will be clearly signed whilst these works are underway and you will be given updates and direction from site staff, so as to avoid any potential confusion. Whilst we anticipate that there will be minimal disruption to visitors, we would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience which might be caused.
