Recycling centres

Household waste recycling centres are available to residents of North Lanarkshire

We operate six household waste Recycling centres in various areas of North Lanarkshire. The sites are open seven days a week including some public holidays (closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day). The centres 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

The sites at Airdrie, Bellshill, Coatbridge, Cumbernauld and Netherton will operate Monday - Saturday, from 7am - 6pm, and on a Sunday from 7am - 5.30pm.

Shotts Waste Recycling Centre will be open Monday - Saturday, from 8am - 6pm, and on a Sunday from 8am - 5.30pm.

No vehicles will be accepted after 5.50pm Monday to Saturday or after 5.20pm on a Sunday.

In order to improve recycling rates:

  • Residents will be asked to assist in the recycling of material by placing each 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, click on the link for more information about Van or trailer access at recycling centres

This is to ensure the Council complies with the conditions of the licence,
