Autumn opening hours at recycling centres

Nottinghamshire’s Recycling Centres are open from 8am until 8pm throughout September. However as the nights draw in, the Recycling Centres will close earlier, meaning from the 1st October to the 31st October, Recycling Centres will still open at 8am but will close at 6pm.
Nottinghamshire’s Recycling Centres run by Veolia (Nottinghamshire County Council’s waste contractors) are open seven days a week for Nottinghamshire residents to recycle their garden waste, cardboard, glass bottles and jars, as well as a range of other items including electrical and electronic items, furniture, batteries including car batteries, engine oil and used cooking oil.
Richard Allen, Contract Logistics Manager for Veolia Nottinghamshire says: “October is the last month before the shorter winter opening hours so it’s a perfect opportunity to recycle a wide range of materials and prepare your home and garden for autumn.”
From the 1st October to the 31st October, Recycling Centres will close at 6pm instead of 8pm and from the 1st November the sites will close at 4pm as the clocks go back for winter and daylight hours decrease.
Nottinghamshire residents are asked to assist in recycling by sorting out their waste prior to going to the site. Separate containers are provided at all the centres for the many different types of waste and the attendants at each centre are available to offer guidance and assistance to make sure waste goes into the right containers for recycling.
Don’t forget Nottinghamshire residents now need to be registered to use any of the 12 Recycling Centres. Register at or by calling 0300 500 80 80.
