 Other HWRCs in Northamptonshire

The other Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) in the County (including the site at Paterson Road in Wellingborough) 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 these HWRCs, including opening hours, can be found on the Northamptonshire County Council website.
