Details about Saffron Walden household waste recycling site and where to find local glass and textile recycling banks.

 

Updates on our service due to Coronavirus

15 recycling centres, including the one at Thaxted Road in Saffron Walden, opened on Monday 18 May for waste or recycling which cannot be stored at home without causing a health or safety risk. The Saffron Walden site will be open from 9am to 5pm every day.

A visit to a recycling centre is only essential where there is no alternative available. The safest way to get rid of your waste and recycling by is using your kerbside collection.
