Coronavirus update

Find out the latest coronavirus information for our bins and recycling service.

We operate six household waste Recycling centres for North Lanarkshire residents.

The sites are open seven days a week including some public holidays (closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day).

They are only licensed to accept domestic household waste and cannot accept commercial waste.

If you are a business and need to dispose of commercial waste, you can find details of appropriately licensed sites online or consult a waste disposal directory.

Opening hours

Airdrie, Bellshill, Coatbridge, Cumbernauld and Netherton centres are open Monday to Saturday, 7am to 6pm and Sunday, 7am to 5.30pm.

Shotts is open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 6pm and Sunday, 8am to 5.30pm.

Last entry is ten minutes before closing time.

In order to improve recycling rates:

  • we ask residents to help recycling by placing material in the appropriate designated skip or container
  • recycling attendants will be on site to provide assistance
  • only household waste will be accepted (no commercial)

If you intend to use a van or a single axle trailer to transport waste to the site, a booking system is in operation. Find out more about van or trailer access at recycling centres.

This is to make sure we comply with the conditions of our licence.
