A list of items can be found on our A to Z directory of waste.

Please break up large items such as sofas and armchairs before your visit if they can.

Bike sales and Bric-a-Brac items

Bric-a-Brac and bikes are available to buy daily. Proceeds go to local charities and good causes.

We no longer sell compost at the sites.

Bring to recycling sites have been removed

Bring to recycling banks were places where householders could recycle reasonable amounts of cans, glass, paper and plastic. We removed these facilities after making improvements to kerbside recycling collections.

If you have extra rubbish or recycling to get rid of, please take it to Grimsby or Immingham Community Recycling Centres.

Rubbish which has been dumped illegally will be searched and the owner will have legal action taken against them.
