"Sort it before you bring it" - help us increase recycling at our Household Recycling Centres
Our data shows that more than a third of the items put in the general rubbish skips at our Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) could have been recycled.
As part of our 'Recycling: Let's Sort It' campaign we encourage you to sort your waste before you visit your local HRC, ensuring that all items are separated correctly and make sure they don't get sent to landfill unnecessarily.
Sorting waste at HRCs
If you don't have time to do this before you set off, we will be providing designated sorting areas at each of our HRCs to give you the opportunity to sort your materials on-site as easily as possible - with our site staff on hand to provide advice and guidance.
The sorting areas were introduced first in Devizes and Warminster. From 25 September, sorting areas will also be present at Lower Compton, Marlborough, Melksham and Purton. Finally, from 9 October, sorting areas will be used at Amesbury, Salisbury, Stanton St Quintin and Trowbridge.
So, whether you have been clearing out the garage, moving house, or just having a tidy up - please take the time and care sort out your recycling before you visit the HRC.
