Visiting the recycling centres

Before your visit:

  • Access to the recycling centres is restricted to Lisburn Castlereagh residents only. Please have your photographic ID with proof of address available for inspection on arrival. If your photographic ID does not show your address you should also bring a recent utility bill.
  • Only visit if it is essential and you cannot dispose of the waste through your normal kerbside collection service.
  • Separate and sort your waste by type at home. It will help save time and allow you to maintain a social distance at all times when at the recycling centre.
  • Choose the recycling centre closest to your home and check the opening hours before you leave. It is your responsibility to decide if it is an essential journey to dispose of waste.
  • Domestic heating oil tanks are no longer accepted at Household Recycling Centres and the Council will 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.
