Asbestos, tyres and gas cylinders
Asbestos requires specialist processing and dealing with such a dangerous material at a public facility is difficult and expensive. From 1 April 2017, asbestos is no longer accepted at any recycling centre.
Before starting any work where asbestos may be present, consult local business directories to find a company licensed to remove and dispose of asbestos waste. Useful information and licensed contractors can be found on the HSE web site.
Tyres need specialist recycling facilities so we do not accept tyres at any recycling centre. Please contact a local tyre fitting company about disposal.
Gas cyclinders are the property of the cylinder supplier and should be returned to them.
