What Can I Recycle at a Household Waste Recycling Centre?

What our Newtown Road and Padworth centres can and can't accept

From 4 July 2017, we will no longer recycle hard plastics (such as garden furniture) at our sites.

You can dispose of hard plastics in the Newtown Road Recycling Centre's bulky or general waste containers.

  

We have two recycling centres in West Berkshire, located in Newbury and Padworth.
