We have three modern household waste and recycling centres located across the city. All our centres are designed to maximise recycling.
Residents' pass scheme
To use the sites you need to display a pass in the window of your car to prove you are a Hull resident. If you have not received your pass, or if you lose the pass or forget it, you can still gain access to the sites by showing one of the following as proof of your address in Hull -
- recent utility bill such as gas, electric or council tax
- driving licence
If you wish to use a commercial vehicle you still require a permit.
The new opening times are -
|Monday||10am - 5pm|
|Tuesday||10am - 5pm|
|Friday||10am - 5pm|
|Saturday||10am - 5pm|
|Sunday||10am - 5pm|
|Bank holidays||10am - 5pm|
The sites are often busy in a morning and on a Friday, please take this into account when planning your visit.
Use of the sites
If you are a resident of Hull you can recycle or dispose of household waste at any of our sites. However business, trade or commercial users may not use them. Arrangements for trade or business collections should be made either by our trade waste officers or by private contractors.
If you can't transport recyclables to the site yourself, you can use the bulky item collection service.

How to deal with asbestos
Asbestos can only be deposited at the Wiltshire Road household waste and recycling centre. You need to follow these instructions -
- make sure all asbestos is double bagged, wrapped and sealed in suitable heavy duty plastic bags (such as soil, rubble or garden waste bags (available from most supermarkets and DIY stores) or heavy duty plastic sheeting (available from builder’s merchants)
- deposit the material into the asbestos container yourself
- follow the instructions of the site staff at all times
Site staff inspect the bags used to deposit asbestos. If the bags are split or are not correctly sealed, they are not accepted. Also, if the bags are not of sufficient strength and split when lifted they are not accepted.
If you bring asbestos in carrier bags, hessian bags, pedal bin liners or similar lightweight black plastic bags, wrapped in cling film or bubble wrap they are not accepted.
