Neighbourhood Recycling Points

Where is my nearest Neighbourhood Recycling Point?

To give everyone the opportunity to recycle, the Council has located Neighbourhood Recycling Points throughout Inverclyde.

The majority of these Neighbourhood Recycling Points have containers to allow householders to recycle glass and many sites have blue containers where residents can recycle paper, cardboard, cans and plastic bottles and food containers. Some sites also have banks for recycling clothes, textiles, shoes etc.

When you are using the Neighbourhood Recycling Points please remember the following:

  • be courteous to nearby residents and try to use the recycling points between 8am and 8pm
  • it is important that you place your bottles and other materials in the correct containers
  • keep the sites tidy by taking your carrier bags/boxes home with you
  • if any of the bottle banks or containers are full or if a site is littered or has illegally dumped rubbish, please report this to the Recycling Helpline
  • don’t use these sites to dump other household waste, furniture etc.  This is an offence under the Environmental Protection Act 1990
  • please don’t put pyrex glass, window panes, drinking glasses, spectacles or ceramics into the glass contianers.

Community Wardens patrol the areas around the Neighbourhood Recycling Points and if they have evidence of who is responsible for dumping non-recyclable rubbish at these sites, they will issue fixed penalty notices.
