If you live in Bolton you can use any Recycling Centre in Greater Manchester free of charge for waste and recycling from your home. This includes waste from normal day-to-day household activities and DIY projects.

Any waste produced by tradespeople or builders you hired to carry out improvements, repair or alterations to your home is classed as business waste and can’t be disposed of at any of our Recycling Centres. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote.

Vehicles are monitored to make sure the Recycling Centres are only being used for household waste. Action will be taken against any tradespeople or builders found to be using the Recycling Centres for business waste.
