We operate four recycling centres at Polmadie, Shieldhall, Dawsholm and Queenslie. These facilities are available to dispose of and recycle a wide stream of materials that are not currently collected within the domestic waste bins.
Dawsholm Recycling Centre

Please note: Construction work will be underway at Dawsholm for approximately 12 weeks from 12 August 2019 as a roof is replaced over the current wood, rubble and green waste bays. Alternative disposal facilities will be provided for these material streams and the centre will remain open during this time, however, there is potential for some disruption to users. The three other HWRC remain fully open during this time.
