The webcam link for the HWRC sites has been temporarily removed.

The public webcam images currently show a reduced number of people on site following social distancing measures, which gives a false indication of how busy the sites are. They do not show the roads outside the sites and any queues that may be there.

​Opening times

Temporary closures

When it's really busy, queues can start to form which block businesses and road access. This can be dangerous.

When this happens, we'll temporarily close the recycling centre and ask traffic to turn back and return a little later while we clear the vehicles already inside. We're really sorry for any inconvenience caused but it's important that we look after the safety of people in and around the recycling centre.

​Day ​Site open
​Monday ​10am to 6pm
​Tuesday ​10am to 6pm
​Friday ​10am to 6pm
​Saturday ​10am to 6pm
​Sunday ​10am to 6pm

​​Bank holiday opening times

Wellingborough Household Waste Recycling Centre is open on bank holidays, except where these fall on the centre's closed days (Wednesdays and Thursdays).

The site will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day, and will close at 2pm on Christmas Eve (depending on which day Christmas Eve falls on).

​This site does not accept trade waste

Small scale traders can recycle certain waste types, or dispose of general waste at a competitive price using our trade waste service at some of our sites.
