Recycling centres reopening from 1 June

Household Waste Recycling Centres available for residents from 1 June 2020.

Recycling centres set for phased reopening in Renfrewshire

The reopening will be subject to the Scottish Government advising it is safe.

The centres will be open for essential visits only with additional health and safety measures  in place to protect residents and staff.

From 1 June, all Renfrewshire sites will reopen on a phased basis and residents are being advised to double check opening times before they leave the house:

  • Underwood Road (Monday-Sunday) (8.30am-6pm)
  • Linwood (Monday-Sunday) (8am-6pm)
  • Erskine (Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday) (8am-6pm)
  • Renfrew (Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday) (8am-6pm)
  • Johnstone (Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday) (8am-6pm)

In the initial period, only bagged excess household waste will be accepted at recycling centres, with garden waste, scrap metal and small amounts of rubble accepted from 15 June.

From 22 June, residents can bring cookers, washing machines, tumble driers and dishwashers, unless these can continue to be stored safely at home, while all other items including TVs, computers, fridges, freezers and smaller electrical appliances will be accepted from 29 June.

To protect residents and staff members, reduce unloading times and ease congestion from potential traffic queues, only cars will be permitted to enter recycling centres at this time.

Traffic will be managed at each of the open recycling centres and residents are asked to follow the single file queue and be aware of site safety measures when they arrive.

Anyone visiting a recycling centre will be required, as normal, to show proof of residency and photo identification.
