Recycling centres and civic amenity sites

Last updated: Monday 29 June

Recycling centres in Belfast have reopened to the public. Temporary arrangements are in place in order to protect your and our staff's health and safety, and to facilitate social distancing in line with the current public health advice. 

  • Recycling centres are open seven days per week. View recycling centre opening hours.
  • You may be asked to provide proof of address as the sites will only be open for people living in the Belfast City Council area. Examples of proof of address we will accept include your driving licence, a utility bill (gas, electricity, broadband supplier), or a bank statement.
  • There may be significant queues and delays, so please co-operate with any traffic arrangements in place and the instructions from staff.
  • Please sort any recyclable waste before visiting the recycling centre. We cannot accept any commercial waste.

  • Temporary traffic management arrangements will be in place at each of our recycling centres to allow vehicles to enter and exit our sites safely.
