Smugglers Way Household Waste and Recycling Centre
Updated: Monday, 17th January 2022
To ensure that residents and HWRC Centre staff keep safe, please ensure that if you are unwell with symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), or are required to self isolate, you do not visit the Centre to drop off your waste.
Please be aware that both the Authority’s transfer stations, Cringle Dock and Smugglers Way (which also includes the Household Waste and Recycling Centre), now sit within the expanded Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ). Vehicles using the HWRC either need to meet the ULEZ emissions standards, or pay a £12.50 daily charge when entering the zone.
