Household Waste Recycling Centres

Updated Thursday 9 July

Our Household Waste Recycling Centres will be fully operational again from Monday 13 July.

Residents will be able to dispose of a wide variety of household waste.

The centres are for North Lanarkshire residents only so you must show photographic ID and proof of address.

To comply with physical distancing guidelines, traffic management is still in place at our centres 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 must book in at least one day in advance. Bookings will not be accepted on the day at the centres.

No commercial waste allowed. Vans will be checked before entering the centres and will be refused entry if the material does not match the booking form or is deemed to be commercial.


Burning household waste

You cannot get rid of household waste if it will cause pollution or harm people's health. This includes burning it or fly tipping it. 

You should report burning of waste directly to Fire Scotland.

For more information, please see our advice on burning waste.
