HWRC Summer Opening Times

Sheffield City Council and Veolia Environmental Services would like to remind residents that from Tuesday 1 April 2014, the opening times at the five Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) found in Beighton, Deepcar, High Green, Shirecliffe and on Blackstock Road are changing to 10am – 6pm until Tuesday 30 September 2014.

The HWRCs are provided for Sheffield residents to dispose of household waste from their own homes, such as: garden waste, electrical equipment, furniture and other bulky household items. The sites also provide recycling containers for items that can not be recycled at home including plastic containers, foil and textiles. Over 70% of the waste taken to the HWRCs is recovered or recycled.

Veolia Environmental Services would also like to remind residents that the five HWRCs operate a vehicle permit scheme. Veolia Environmental Services operates the permit scheme on behalf of Sheffield City Council to prevent the illegal disposal of trade waste at any of the sites. This means that 4x4s with pickups, small vans, Short Wheel Base transit vans, mini buses and cars with trailers will only be allowed on site with a permit.

For more information about the waste and recycling services provided in Sheffield, including which materials can be taken to the HWRCs and site opening days, please visit: www.veolia.co.uk/sheffield or call: 0114 273 4567.
