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 new centre at Denby Dale Road features

  • Improved recycling facilities
  • Improved traffic arrangements to reduce queuing and avoid site closures for bin change
  • 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 Centre will also be open until 8pm on a Friday when Summer time opening hours are in operation.

Please note the commercial customer disposal point at this facility is now available to non-tipper vehicles between the hours of 08:00 - 10:00 and 15:00 - 17:00 Monday to Friday. The last permitted entry to the facility will be no later than 16:45 to allow sufficient time for tipping. Customers can pay by cash (up to a value of £20) or Credit Card and will be given instructions where to dispose of their waste on arrival.
