Household Waste Recycling Centres

Cumbria Waste Group manages a network of  Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC) across Cumbria.

We manage the centres on behalf of Cumberland Council and Westmorland & Furness Council. They help to maximize local waste diversion for the local authorities.

Our sites are managed by friendly, motivated and trained staff who are on hand to help local residents when disposing of/recycling various materials.

As well as accepting residual waste, garden waste and basic dry recyclables, they now also provide many more recycling options for an ever-increasing range of materials.

They include materials such as batteries, electrical equipment, textiles, paint, engine and cooking oil, printer cartridges and lightbulbs.

The recycling rates at our HWRC’s are high, with some achieving well over 70%. But we are always striving to improve this further. This means the visitors to the sites can have confidence that the effort they have made to segregate and recycle their will have a positive environmental impact.

Here is a full list of the HWRCs we manage in Cumbria.

Please be aware that there may be shorter opening hours during winter months.
