Recycling at home - Recycling centres and local bring sites

Household Waste and Recycling Centres

The Household Waste Recycling Centre's are managed by Nottinghamshire County Council.

Bassetlaw residents who wish to use the household recycling centres will need to register with Nottinghamshire County Council to continue to use the sites.  Your use of the recycling centres depends on where you live, the waste you have, who you are and the vehicle you wish to use. 

To make sure only those allowed to use the recycling centres do so you must register your vehicle(s) with Nottinghamshire County Council first.

If you move house or change your vehicle, or have registered one vehicle and wish to add another (you can register up to two), you will need to complete the registration form again to update your details.

Opening times

Recycling centres are open every day of the year except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day. The opening times of the recycling centres vary depending on the time of year. Please visit the County Council's recycling centres page (external link) to find out the latest opening times.

Pringles tubes, coffee and hot chocolate containers

Bassetlaw District Council, in partnership with the Alliance for Beverage Cartons & the Environment (ACE UK), has launched a new recycling service for paper containers with metal ends, such as Pringles tubes, hot chocolate, nuts and other products.

Local residents can now recycle their containers alongside food and drink cartons at specialist bring banks located at:

  • Town Hall, Scrooby Road, Harworth
  • New Street Car Park, Retford
  • Car Park, Prospect Precinct, Worksop.

The new service is the result of an agreement between ACE UK, which operates the dedicated food and drink carton recycling service and packaging manufacturer Sonoco Consumer Products Europe.

This means that the items can be deposited at the sites instead of being placed in the green general waste bin at home.
