Recycling Centres are open 6 days a week (closed Wednesdays). The hours are 9am-4pm in the winter (October to March) and 9am-5pm in the summer (April to September). There is late night opening from May to August on Thursday evenings until 7pm.

After consultation with the public, the decision was made to close sites on Wednesdays, the quietest day, in order to be able to increase hours at weekends and on Thursday evenings in the summer
