Where can I recycle?
SUEZ (formally known as Sita UK) provides a recycling collection service for up to 90,000 households in Calderdale.
An improved recycling service will be introduced on the 1st August 2016, collecting more materials to be recycled, specifically corrugated cardboard, cartons (also known as Tetra Pak) and plastic containers from domestic households. Simply place your containers at the edge of your property where it meets the public highway by 7 am on your collection day.
What goes in my recycling containers
- glass bottles and jars, corrugated cardboard and small electrical items, such as kettles, hairdryers in the black box;
- paper and thin card (eg cereal boxes) and cartons in your green bag;
- textiles in any used carrier bag;
- plastic bottles and containers (meat trays, yoghurt pots) and food and drinks cans in your white sack, (please place loose lids in the sack, do not leave on the bottles);
- food waste in the large brown food caddy.
Household Waste Recycling centres (HWRC)
Calderdale Council provides 5 Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs or 'tips') throughout the borough, which offer facilities for recycling including those mentioned above, in addition to cardboard, scrap metal, fridges, motor oil, green garden waste, car batteries, bricks and rubble and timber.
There are approximately 20 Recycling banks in Calderdale where householders can take items such as glass, paper, cans, textiles and shoes, and some sites also accept books and music, carrier bags, low energy light bulbs and mobile phones.
