Springing into action across the Island

The council’s mobile household recycling centre (HRC) will be springing up in sites across the Island from Thursday 1 February.

The facility, provided by the Isle of Wight Council, in partnership with Amey, comes just in time for that spring clear-out of household recyclables and has a regular timetable of visits to areas including Chale, Ventnor, Ryde, Lake, Newport, Yarmouth and Cowes.

The unit provides a further facility that reaches out into the community to help people recycle more. It will also accept items such as household batteries or small electrical appliances, that can’t be collected as part of a normal household recycling collection and would normally have to be taken by residents to Lynnbottom and Afton Marsh Household and Waste Recycling Centres.

“The mobile household recycling centre makes it easier for residents to recycle those materials that can’t be collected as part of a normal household recycling collection and as they are near public transport links, helps to cut down on harmful CO2 emissions, by saving on a tip to the trip, “ said Councillor Michael Murwill, Cabinet member for waste management.

“I want residents to make full use of the mobile centre, as it provides even more convenience to help get recycle those difficult items, such as paint, which can then be reused as part of our reduce, reuse and recycle scheme.”

Paul Southall, account director for Amey on the Isle of Wight, said “Small electrical appliances such as irons or microwaves would normally have to be taken to the household waste and recycling centres at Lynnbottom or Afton Marsh.

“The mobile HRC means that we can come to you and makes it easier to dispose of those items that we are unable to take in your wheeled bin or gull-sacks. We look forward to seeing residents at their local HRC site this spring.”

Each area the mobile HRC is due to visit is close to public transport links. The facility will not accept commercial waste, garden green waste or non-recyclable waste.

The mobile HRC will have facilities to recycle the following items only:

  • Batteries (household)
  • Small electrical appliances (i.e. toaster, hairdryer)
  • Bulbs/fluorescent tubes
  • Paper/cardboard
  • Magazines
  • Printer cartridges
  • CDs & video tapes
  • Mobile phones
  • Metal (large metal items will not be accepted)
  • Plastics
  • Textiles (including clothing)
  • Paint tins (lids must be on)

The mobile HRC will be open at 10am and close at 2pm each day, at each area. Residents are asked not to leave items in the above areas outside of the 10am to 2pm opening times, as they will not be collected.
