Bins and recycling - coronavirus update

Household waste recycling centres

Our household waste and recycling centres remain open at this time. Only visit these sites if you feel that your journey is essential and comply with the physical distancing measures in place. Please do not visit if you have symptoms of Covid-19 or are self-isolating.

The centres are for North Lanarkshire residents only - you must bring photo identification and proof of your address when you visit a centre. To comply with physical distancing guidelines, traffic management is still in place and the number of vehicles allowed in at any one time is restricted. Queues are likely - please be patient.

Vans up to 3.5t gross weight and single axle trailers only will be allowed into four of our centres - Netherton, Shotts, Coatbridge or Cumbernauld. Vans and trailers cannot use the other centres. Vans and trailers must book in at least one day in advance. Bookings will not be accepted on the day at the centres. No commercial waste allowed.

Waste disposal guidance for households with possible coronavirus infection

You can securely store personal waste (such as used tissues) and disposable face masks and cleaning cloths within disposable rubbish bags. These should be:

  • placed into another bag
  • tied securely
  • kept separate from other waste in your room
  • put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external household waste bin

Other household waste can be disposed of as normal.
