Household Waste Recycling Centres

Published: 08 August 2023

The availability of appointments at West Berkshire Council’s Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) is to increase in order to provide more capacity during the most popular time slots.

This means there will be 488 slots available at Padworth Lane each day.

The Newtown Road HWRC has extended its hours to 8.00pm until September, and will have 628 appointments daily.

The HWRCs are fully equipped to accept a wide range of waste materials including paper, glass, plastic, electrical items, vapes, and more.

All visitors must book an appointment before visiting either of the recycling centres.

Residents are also required to register for a permit beforehand. Non-residents can visit the centres but will need to pay £7.77 per visit on arrival.

Further information about the HWRCs, permits and booking is available on West Berkshire Council’s web site.
