Renfrewshire Council

Household Waste Recycling Centres

Our Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRC) are open to cars, with some restrictions and additional health and safety measures in place. We will continue to follow Scottish Government advice.

Cars only

At this time, only cars are allowed into our recycling sites. Vans and trailers are not permitted as these take longer to empty, cause lengthy traffic queues and cause potential health and safety risks which need to be avoided at this time.

In line with this, the permit system is currently suspended as cars do not need one but you must bring proof of residency and ID with you. This will be checked through your window before you enter the site.

From 13 July, larger vehicles will be able to visit our Linwood site only. Find out more - Vans, pickups and trailers.

Essential visits

If you can store waste safely at home, please continue to do that as we continue to deal with the Coronavirus pandemic.

Coronavirus symptoms

If you have Coronavirus symptoms, or have been in contact with someone who has, please do not visit our recycling centres. You should immediately self-isolate in line with the national guidance.
