Please note that All Suffolk Recycling Centres are closed from Monday 23 March until further notice. The safety of customers and staff is very important, therefore in accordance with current government Coronavirus guidelines of avoiding non-essential contact and preventing a risk of infection to others, the sites will be closed. It is essential that we all do all we can to slow down the spread of the virus.  

Suffolk County Council have issued the following guidelines:


  • That much of the waste that goes through the Recycling Centres is bulky waste (large items such as furniture, wood and metals) and garden waste.  People should hold onto these items until the sites reopen. Do not put any electrical items in any of your bins at home.



  • Please do not leave any waste outside the Recycling Centres – staff should concentrate on delivering waste services and leaving waste outside the centres is classed as fly tipping and is a criminal offence for which people will be prosecuted.
