Community recycling centres (tips) 

Community recycling centres (CRCs) give Warrington residents the opportunity to recycle a wide range of household waste and help to create a better environment.  Household waste ONLY is accepted at the community recycling centres, NO commercial and trade waste is accepted.  To help make your visit as quick as possible and to reduce waiting times, please sort your recyclables before visiting the site and ensure they are put in the correct skip.

Top tip: Beat the queues by visiting the centres during the week if possible, rather than at weekends.

There are three CRCs in Warrington, open every day except Christmas day, boxing day and new year's day:
