Due to flooding at Millom Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) it has become necessary to temporarily close the site in the short-term.

In the meantime we are providing an emergency waste disposal facility from the area of land adjacent to the existing site.

The emergency service will be a reduced service and will only accept any additional residual waste that your house generates  - ie black bag rubbish. It will be available from 8am and until 2pm (or until capacity is filled) Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.


Please do not bring the following materials for disposal:

         Recyclable materials E.g. cans, paper, card, plastic, glass.

         Electrical items  - E.g. white goods, small domestic appliances, batteries.

         Hazardous wastes E.g. paint, oil, asbestos

         Bulky waste items E.g. sofas, mattresses, furniture items.

If you have reusable or recyclable materials to dispose of then please check the alternative recycling facilities in Millom.

We will look to develop this temporary service in the medium-term so that we can accept more materials for recycling. Keep checking back for the most up to date information as to what materials the site will accept.

Redhills Quarry, Mainsgate Road, Millom, Cumbria, LA18 4LD.
