HWRCs can be used by Calderdale's residents 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 you have time to deposit your waste and exit the site, before the closure time.
