Household Waste Recycling Centres

Main Details

Lancashire County Council operates Recycling Centres where householders can recycle their rubbish.

Opening hours

Please be aware that the opening hours of the recycling centres changes depending on the time of year.

  • 8am - 7pm 7 days a week (Summer - 1st March to 31st October)
  • 9am - 6pm 7 days a week (Winter - 1st November to 28/29th February)

The recycling centres are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Years Day.

The recycling centres operate an access policy and permit scheme which restricts use of the sites by certain large vehicles and trailers. This policy helps to increase safety and reduce congestion at the sites. Please also remember that the recycling centres do not accept trade waste of any description.

You can apply for a permit online. Please note that first time users will need to register before they can complete their application.

Find your nearest Recycling Centre

We also have dedicated staff on hand to help you recycle your rubbish. These staff are easily identifiable in their bright uniforms that carry our "Here to help" logo. They are available to assist you with all aspects of your visit to a recycling centre whether it is help with recycling that you require, a hand to unload your car or just help to carry a heavy item.
