recycling and 'Bring' centres near Lady Bay

Nottinghamshire Recycling Facilities

Nottinghamshire Council's local Recycling Centre, Rugby Road, West Bridgford, NG2 7HX, is closed at the current time due to Covid-19 restrictions. People are asked to keep their material until the centre can reopen.

Accept a variety of items e.g. textiles, metals, electricals, engine oil, car batteries & cooking oil, wood, chipboard, garden waste, fluorescent tubes and long-life lightbulbs.  For full list, but you have a lot to wade through, see here - https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/waste-and-recycling/recycling-and-disposing-of-waste/how-to-recycle-or-dispose-of-common-waste-items

Rushcliffe Borough Council’s ‘Bring Sites’ (bottle banks etc.) are still being operated by Rushcliffe Council but on a less frequent basis, on the assumption that people are conforming with government instructions to only go out for essential purposes.  They request that , where possible, people stockpile their recycling items at home until the crisis is over.

Such as the ones at the West Bridgford library car park and at Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s. We welcome feedback on what is and is not accepted at these sites.

These take separated glass bottles and jars and tetrapacks (with or without tops? we aren't yet sure), clothes, household fabrics, shoes (for re-use?).  We also believe that Sainsbury’s and Morrisons will accept used plastic bags but at a collection point in-store, not at the Bring Site. We also don't yet know whether there are any differences between the sites.

You can find your nearest Bring Site, via this link - https://www.rushcliffe.gov.uk/environmentandwaste/recyclingandwaste/recyclingandcomposting/recyclingsites/

Morrisons Bring Site

Click on the photo, taken in February 2020, to enlarge.  We are not sure whether the presence of plastic tops on the tetrapaks is significant - we suspect they shouldn't be included.

Site also accepts green, brown and clear glass bottles and jars.
