Recycling centres (Tips)

Gloucestershire County Council operates two Household Waste Recycling Centres in the Stroud area at Horsley and Hempsted.



Opening times for both sites

9.00am - 6.15pm Monday to Sunday*. These hours will stay the same all year round.
*except Christmas Day and New Years Day

These sites accept a wide variety of materials for recycling including, paper, cardboard, textiles, garden waste, plastic bottles, engine oil, vegetable oil, light bulbs (traditional and energy efficient), fluorescent tubes, beverage cartons, glass, metal, wood and timber, batteries. Coupled with this you can also take waste for landfill and rubble.
