Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs)
Brighouse (Atlas Mill) HWRC
Please Note: There are currently temporary traffic lights at the entrance to Brighouse Household Waste Recycling Centre, which are likely to cause delays accessing the site. Please try to avoid busy times, such as weekends and consider using other sites such as Elland and Halifax.
Household Waste Recycling Centres can be used by residents of Calderdale to deposit items that do not fit in the domestic wheelie bin or black bin liners.
Separate skips are provided for cardboard, plastic bottles, timber, electrical items, green waste etc. By sorting your waste before you visit and placing materials in the correct skip you are helping to ensure the maximum amount is recovered.
The service is free to use, but please ensure that you have sufficient time to deposit your waste and exit the site before the site closure time.
Re-use shop; "Revive"
There are containers at all household waste recycling centres for the collection of good quality unwanted items that can be given a new lease of life through resale in our new shop, Revive, opening soon at Brighouse HWRC. Items such as furniture, home ware, clothing, bric-a-brac, sports equipment, tools and garden equipment can be deposited at the sites.
Due to issues with PAT testing and legal responsibilities surrounding this no electrical items can be sold, these items should be deposited in the electrical's skip provided, or from 1st August 2016, small electrical items such as hairdryers, toasters and kettles can be placed in your black box and collected on the kerbside collection scheme.
Stuffed furniture such as sofas, mattresses, armchairs and cushions must have fire labels attached that are dated from 1988 or later. These regulations cover both indoor and outdoor stuffed furniture, unless it was produced before 1950 when a fire certificate is not required.
Children’s toys must display the CE mark on the toy or its packaging showing that the manufacturer has declared that their product complies with European health, safety and environmental legislation.
Safety equipment such as bike helmets, children’s car seats, life jackets cannot be sold from Revive. We are not able to test them to the required standards and could be liable if they are sold and then fail to work properly.
All items will be checked to ascertain whether they are fit for purpose.

The service is free to use, but please ensure that you have sufficient time to deposit your waste and exit before site closure time.
