Household Waste Recycling Centres

There are ten Household Waste Recycling Centres in the county providing a service for the public to bring waste materials.

Kettering Recycling Centre

Temporary closure 15 September 2014

Due to the grand opening of our Waste Education Centre, this facility will be temporarily closed between 1:15pm and 3:30pm on 15 September 2014. 

Before your visit...

  • Check opening times before planning a visit as some of our sites are closed on selected weekdays.
  • Check our webcam to plan your journey and determine how busy the site is.
  • See what you can recycle at our recycling centres.
  • Check to see if our reuse shops will take your item(s). 
  • Trade waste is accepted at four sites (marked with a T below).
  • Check what restrictions and limits apply to how much waste you can bring as DIY waste disposal.

Access to garden waste containers

We are replacing our garden waste ground level containers with ramp level containers.

Please ask site staff for help if you have any difficulty using the new containers.
