Household Recycling Centres No Longer Accepting Waste Domestic Heating Oil Tanks: As a result of updated guidance issued by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA) in relation to the Management of Waste Domestic Heating Oil Tanks, from Monday 27 January 2020 the Council will no longer be able to accept waste domestic heating oil tanks at its Household Recycling Centres.  In addition the Council will also not accept this waste for collection through the Bulky Collection Service.  Householders are advised to contact a specialist contractor who are authorised and licensed to collect, store and dispose of the tanks.

Lisburn & Castlereagh City Council provides Household Recycling Centres primarily for the recycling and disposal of household waste by residents of the Council area. Access into the Council’s HRCs for the categories listed below is controlled:

1. Commercial waste (waste arising from a trade or business)

To dispose of trade or business waste at a Council HRC you will need to have a Commercial Waste Disposal Ticket issued by the Council. Commercial waste is chargeable according to the size of the vehicle or trailer. Site staff will check that Disposal tickets are valid.

2. Contractor carrying household waste (e.g. gardener, joiner, handyman)

Contractors carrying household waste are required to have a Controlled Waste Transfer Note covering the waste they are carrying. The Waste Transfer Note must be produced each time the contractor visits a Household Recycling Centre.

3. Charities (waste arising from a Charity)

Charities wishing to dispose of waste should be in possession of a Charity Letter issued by the Council. The Charity Letter must be produced each time a charity visits a Household Recycling Centre.

Should you fall into any of the above categories please contact the number below for further information:-
