Household Waste Recycling Centres

The Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) in Northamptonshire are managed by Enterprise Services (EMS) on behalf of Northamptonshire County Council. These sites provide a service for the public to bring household waste, garden waste, recyclables and other items such as unwanted furniture and white goods for disposal, reuse and recycling. Only some sites are able to accept trade waste for a fee.

Further information about the HWRCs, including opening hours, can be found on the Northamptonshire County Council website.

Important changes to Northamptonshire Recycling Centres from 1st February 2015

Following on from a public consultation, new plans on how Northamptonshire County Council's HWRCs will be run have been agreed by Cabinet.

One of the initial ideas had been to close Wollaston HWRC but the Council is now hopeful that this can be avoided as the authority is exploring the possibility of the site being run by a third party supplier.  The agreed changes include, opening the remaining nine sites five days a week, and opening hours of all sites changing to 10am to 6pm all year round, as favoured by the majority of people surveyed.
