Reopening of household waste and recycling centres in Salford

Some household waste and recycling centres in Salford are now open. Get more information about which ones and what you need to do

Salford waste collections will continue as normal until further notice.

Who can use Household Waste and Recycling Centres

If you live in Salford you can use any of the Household Waste and Recycling Centres free of charge for waste and recycling from your home. This includes waste from normal day-to-day household activities and DIY projects.

Any waste produced by tradespeople or builders you hired to carry out improvements, repair or alterations to your home is classed as business waste and can’t be disposed of at any of our recycling centres. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote.

Vehicles are monitored to make sure the recycling centres are only being used for household waste. Action will be taken against any tradespeople or builders found to be using the recycling centres for business waste.

If you spot a recycling bin that is overflowing and needs emptying please let us know using our online reporting form. Please report any instances of vandalism or damage.
