Recycling Centre changes to summer opening hours


As of 1 April 2021, the opening hours for the Hemel Hempstead Recycling Centre on Eastman Way, HP2 7DU move to the summer opening times of 10am to 6pm. This centre will remain closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. From 1 October 2021, winter opening times of 8am to 4pm will resume.

The Berkhamsted Recycling Centre on Northbridge Road, HP4 1EF is open Monday to Wednesday and Saturday and Sunday from 8.30am to 4.30pm all year.

Did you know that you can check for queues at your Recycling Centre in advance? You can also check if any bins are full or nearly full, opening times and accepted items.

If you plan to visit the Recycling Centre with a van or trailer you will need to apply online for an instant digital van permit. Permits are free and are valid for 12 visits within a 12-month period. Business waste is not accepted at any Recycling Centres. Only a limited amount of DIY waste is accepted.

Warning signCoronavirus (COVID-19): We continue to provide services online and via telephone. However, we recognise that, in some cases, you will need an appointment with an officer so we offer limited pre-booked appointments at the Forum for urgent enquiries. You may experience longer waiting times or an online response due to increased demand on our services. Please call 01442 228000 and ask for the service you require. For council service updates and other advice, please see our COVID-19 page×
