Waste & Recycling

We are trying to encourage residents to reduce the amount of rubbish sent to landfill and we have a number of schemes in place to help you get rid of your waste properly and recycle as much as possible.

Household Waste and Recycling sites - Important Information

From the 1st April, Gedling Borough Council residents wishing to use the Household Waste and Recycling Centres located at Wigwam Lane, Hucknall and Hollinwood Lane, Calverton will first have to complete a free one-off registration to continue using the sites as they do now.

The simple registration process can be completed online via the County Council's website, or by calling the customer service centre on 0300 500 80 80.

There will be no physical permit to display but vehicle checks will be undertaken on-site using hand-held devices.

Recycle CartonsCarton and plastic banks update

You can now recycle paper based drinks and food cartons at recycle banks at our bring sites throughout the borough. Unfortunately we are unable to find anyone to process the plastics including punnets and food trays you cannot put in your green recycling bin. We apologies for any inconvenience caused. 

Small Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE)

We would like to divert this waste away from your black bin so we are offer a collection service. Please leave these items out in untied bags with your glass collection box which is collected monthly - please check your printed or online calendar for dates. The electrical items may be collected at a different time to your glass box as different vehicles are used.

Why is it important to recycle WEEE?

Electrical items such as mobile phones and handheld computers contain valuable plastics and metals. We categorize small WEEE as small handheld items that require a plug or batteries:

Please leave cables and plugs attached to items. We will not accept anything bigger than a standard size toaster or laptop.

Where can I recycle large WEEE items?

Larger items can be taken to Calverton Recycling centre or we can collect as bulky waste.

Mansfield MRF - open day

If you have ever wondered what happens to your recycling once it has been collected from your home, why not arrange for a guided tour of the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) in Mansfield?

If you're interested contact Veolia on 0203 567 4392 to find out which tour times have spaces left.

Battery Recycling‌‌

You can put your dead batteries out for us to collect for recycling by placing them in a clear plastic bag on top of either your green or black bin on collection day. Only household batteries can be accepted, i.e. no car or industrial batteries. ‎

Please store batteries safely: in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight, away from combustible material. Never store damaged or leaking batteries and cover the terminals of lithium batteries with sticky tape.
