Recycle centres

Where can I recycle?

There are over 80 recycling centres in Eden open all the time. See the table below for recycling centre locations and facilities. You can also recycle at Flusco or Kirkby Stephen household waste recycling centres.

What can I recycle at a recycle centre?

We are not able to offer every recycling option at each of our recycling centres. Find your nearest recycle centre and see which materials have a "Yes" next to them to know what you can recycle there.

Do I need to prepare my recycling?

Yes, some recycling does need preparing, see recycle point materials.

Who looks after the recycle centres?

Each village recycle centre is adopted by a local community group which may be the village hall committee, parish council, school, or similar group. Adopting groups receive £15 per tonne for glass, paper and cans collected in return for keeping the site clean and tidy.
