As part of Renewi and Wakefield Council's commitment to increase recycling, we have made some changes to household waste recycling centres to make it easier for you to recycle the things you can’t put in your recycling bin at home.

The centre at Glasshoughton features:

  • Improved recycling facilities
  • Improved traffic arrangements to reduce queuing and avoid site closures for bin changes
  • Canopies to protect you from the weather
  • The Centre will also be open until 8pm one evening a week when Summer time opening hours are in operation.

Some of items you can now recycle at this centre include:

  • Batteries
  • Metal
  • Used engine oil and used cooking oil
  • Wood
  • Electrical & electronic items such as fridges, cookers, TVs, lamps and fluorescent tubes, stereos, hairdryers, computers and mobile phones
  • Hard plastics like children’s toys, patio furniture or storage boxes
  • Clothes and shoes
  • Carpets

The 2m height barrier is no longer being operated at this centre and vehicles over 2m are welcome any day of the week
