HWRCs 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. Please ensure that you have sufficient time to deposit your waste and exit the site before the site closure time.
We have a shop at Brighouse HWRC for the resale of good quality unwanted items. These can be donated at all household waste recycling centres:
Items we can re-use:
- Furniture, home ware, clothing, bric-a-brac, sports equipment, tools and garden equipment
- Stuffed furniture, such as sofas, mattresses, armchairs and cushions. These must have fire labels attached, dated from 1988 or later, whether indoor or outdoor furniture.
- Children’s toys that 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.
Items we cannot re-use:
- Due to issues with PAT testing and legal responsibilities surrounding this no electrical items can be sold. These items should be deposited in the electricals' skip provided. Small electrical items such as hairdryers, toasters and kettles can be placed in your black box and collected on the kerbside collection scheme.

It is environmentally beneficial to separate gypsum from waste, therefore small quantities of plasterboard can be put in the dedicated skip.
