East Renfrewshire metal information signage used at recycling points

There are two staffed household waste and recycling centres in East Renfrewshire and numerous recycling points. Recycling centres take more than just everyday materials for recycling, such as electrical equipment, car batteries and engine oil.

Recycling points are unmanned and available 24/7. 

Residents are kindly requested to take large amounts of packaging to recycling centres as any items left outside containers at recycling points constitutes fly-tipping and is illegal.
