Household waste and recycling centre (HWRC) festive opening times:

Lynnbottom HWRC, Newport and Afton Marsh HWRC, Freshwater, will be closed on Christmas Day but will remain open as normal throughout the rest of the festive period, including New Year's Day.

Lynnbottom HWRC is open seven days a week, while Afton Marsh opens on Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays. Opening hours at both sites are between 10am and 6pm, apart from the Christmas Day closure.

What do I do with… 

Polystyrene packaging
The council, in partnership with Amey, will collect excess polystyrene from households on general (black bin/sack) waste collection days from Monday 20 December until 19 January 2018.

If you have excess polystyrene packaging just place it within a clear or white plastic bag next to your black bin/black gull-proof sack on your collection day. It must be in a clear or white sack so that the collection crews can easily identify it. The clear bag must only contain polystyrene or it won’t be collected. Any excess general waste or black sacks left to the side of your bin or gull-proof sack will not be collected.

After 19 January 2018, please remember polystyrene is not currently recyclable and must be placed in your black bin/black gull-proof sack or taken to Lynnbottom or Afton Marsh HWRCs and placed in the general rubbish skip.

Paper/Christmas cards
Paper based wrapping paper/ cards (without glitter) can be recycled in the paper/ card insert of your green recycling bin or the blue gull proof sack.

Any extra can be placed in a clear or white bag to the side of the bin or gull-proof sack.

Foil based wrapping paper cannot be recycled and should be placed in your black bin or black gull proof sack.

Cardboard
Excess cardboard can be recycled so can be bundled to the side of your recycling bin or blue gull-sack.

Unwanted toys/ bicycles
These can be taken to Lynnbottom or Afton Marsh HWRCs and can be donated for re-use.

Foil
Clean foil and trays can be recycled.

Non-recyclable excess side waste will NOT be collected and should be stored until your next black bin or black gull-proof sack collection date, or can be taken to Lynnbottom or Afton Marsh HWRCs.

Extra recycling that does not fit in your recycling bin/ gull-proof sack can be placed to the side and will be collected in clear/ white sacks.
