Recycling reminders

Residents can take over 30 items to the Council’s three Recycling Centres for recycling, from fridges to electric toothbrushes. The Council currently recycles over 70% of the goods brought to these centres - these are made into new products instead of ending up in landfill sites. For a full list see this page.
Residents can also use their local Recycling Centre at certain days over the Christmas period for any extra waste and recycling collected over the holiday. All broken and unwanted electrical items, however small – from cameras to vacuum cleaners, can also be recycled.

The Council collects real Christmas trees for free for composting throughout January – remember to remove any decorations, cut up if over 4ft tall and leave out on your garden waste collection day next to any waste and recycling. Alternatively, Christmas trees can be brought to the Recycling Centre and put in the garden waste container.

Usual opening times for our Recycling Centres in Bath, Keynsham, and Midsomer Norton are: Monday – Friday 8am – 4.15pm, Weekends and bank holidays 8am – 3.45pm. However they are closed on Saturday 25, Sunday 26 and Monday 27 December 2010 and Saturday 1 January 2011. (Please note, bank holiday closing times apply on Tuesday 28 December and Monday 3 January 2011).
