All Nottinghamshire’s Recycling Centres are able to recycle paper and cardboard, cans and aerosols, plastic bottles and glass bottles and jars, as well as a range of other items including electrical and electronic items, furniture, batteries including car batteries, engine oil, scrap metal, textiles, wood, bric-a-brac, fluorescent tubes and light bulbs, used cooking oil, garden waste and small quantities of soil and hardcore.
The start of summer opening hours also marks the start of our programme of Community RePaint Nottinghamshire public paint evenings. These are held at Beeston, Calverton, Newark and Warsop Recycling Centres and take place every month until October. All dates can be found here.
If you are a Nottinghamshire resident and would like to pick up some free reusable paint at one of these open evenings, contact Nottinghamshire County Council on 0300 500 80 80 to book your slot. Booking is essential.
