Household Waste Recycling Centre

The only way you can take your waste to the HWRC is by booking an appointment. Please don't just turn up - you won't be allowed in. We are now able to offer same day appointments. 

If you have rubbish which will not fit into your bin, or you cannot wait for your next bin collection, you can take your waste to the Household Waste Recycling Centre.


Household Waste Recycling Centre, Haverton Hill Road, Billingham, TS23 1PZ

Opening times

The HWRC is open every day except Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year's Day, during the following hours:

Summer (1 April to 31 October): 8am to 7pm
Winter (1 November to 31 March): 8am to 6pm

The HWRC will close at 4pm on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve.


This site is not open to commercial vehicles, traders, or landlords. Commercial vehicles, traders, and landlords should visit the Environment Agency website for advice about their waste disposal needs.

Please note, this service is for Middlesbrough residents only. If you live in Stockton, you must book your appointment via the Stockton Council website.
