Sites usually open on Mondays will be open on Bank Holiday Mondays, except for Hallow Road, Worcester West.

All sites are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Years Day.
Please be advised that sites close promptly at the time(s) stated above. For your convenience it is advised that you aim to arrive at least 15 minutes before the site closes to allow time to unload.

This will be the sixth site in the county operated by Severn Waste Services on behalf of Herefordshire Council. At present the sites recycle between 68% - 72% of all materials received.

The site manager has asked that all visitors / customers to the new Kington site please sort and separate their recycling materials before visiting the site. This will help to ensure that materials get sent for recycling, which is the intention, and not sent for landfill which is wasteful and inefficient.
Staff at the recycling centre are keen for the new Kington site to be as efficient as possible and ask for your co-operation in this, by making sure all your waste materials are clearly sorted and separated.

Councillors learned a few things about recycling at a recent visit to the Envirosort centre

  • All cans must be clean and dry – unwashed tins will contaminate a load
  • All paper and card must be dry – damp paper will contaminate a load
  • Soft drink bottle tops can be recycled
  • Soft drink bottle tops should be screwed on very lightly (or not at all)
  • Sellotape and parcel tape on cardboard boxes does not need to be removed as it is very low-grade plastic and will disappear in the processing
  • Do not put any black plastic into the recycling as it cannot be recycled and will contaminate a load
Commercial, Industrial and Clinical waste must be disposed of through the Herefordshire Council's Waste Services.

Clinical Waste can be collected free of charge from your home by arrangement.

Find out more about clinical waste collections via the above link, or at The Kington Centre, 64 Bridge St, Kington. Or call: 01432 260600.
