Household Waste Recycling Centres

There are ten Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) in the county which 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. Four of these sites are able to accept trade waste for a fee. A leaflet about all the Household Waste Recycling Centres is available to download.

Location and accepted materials

There are two sites in the Borough of Wellingborough:

  • Paterson Road, Finedon Road Industrial Estate, Wellingborough NN8 4BZ. This site will accept household waste and a range of materials for recycling and re-use. Trade waste is not accepted.
  • Doddington Road, Wollaston NN29 7PR. This site will no longer accept black bag and non recyclable waste. Wollaston is the first waste free recycling centre in the County and will accept a range of materials for recycling and re-use. Trade waste is not accepted.


Opening times

  • Summer (April to September) 8am-8pm
  • Winter (October to March) 8am-6pm

Please note the site at Paterson Road is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and Wollaston HWRC is closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Re-use shops

Members of the public can still take items suitable for re-use to the Household Waste Recycling Centres, but the sale of these items will be made at the off-site reuse shops. The general public can visit these reuse shops and browse at their leisure. To find your nearest re-se shop please check the Northamptonshire County Council website.
