Come into the Centre to access the following resources:

1. Recycling Service

We will be putting a temporary hold on our recycling service from 31 July 2019, essentially to reassess the services we provide due to recent changes made by our partner organisations. Until then we can accept the following:

  • Oral care products
  • Mailing satchels
  • Printer cartridges
  • Pens, pencils and markers
  • Nespresso coffee pods

Please note that Terracycle have ceased to recycle cosmetic products so we are unable to accept these. 

We also have information about where to drop off other tricky items and how to recycle right at home. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and website for further updates.
