Household Waste Recycling Centres

Lighter nights and longer opening hours start at the beginning of April - giving us all more time to recycle.

Rotherham householders are reminded that from Friday 1 April, the four Household Waste Recycling Centres run by Rotherham Council begin summer hours. They will be open 6 days a week from 10am until 6.30pm.

Recycling centres are available for Rotherham householders to use, free of charge.

Please remember:

  • Magilla (North Anston) is closed every Tuesday
  • Car Hill (Greasbrough) is closed every Wednesday
  • Warren Vale (Rawmarsh) is closed every Thursday
  • Lidget Lane (Bramley) is closed every Friday

Householders are asked to assist in recycling by sorting out their waste prior to going to the centres.

Separate containers are provided at each of the centres for many different types of waste. Attendants are available to offer guidance to ensure waste goes into the appropriate containers for recycling.

Currently, around 70 percent of all waste received at the centres is recycled.

In addition, bulky item collection is available for household furniture and domestic appliances - £21 for up to 3 items. Up to 3 further items can be collected for £15. Rothercard discount (50 percent) applies.

DIY items can also be collected for £39.93 for up to 3 items, including items such as bathroom suites and kitchen units. Further items can be collected (£25 for each additional 3 items up to a maximum of 9 items). There is no Rothercard discount for this service.
