Gainsborough Household Waste Recycling Centre
On 3rd April 2015 Gainsborough HWRC will move to Long Wood Road, Corringham Road Industrial Estate, Gainsborough, DN21 1QB. The site on Summergangs lane will no longer be accessible to members of the public and will not accept any more waste. The new site is owned by Lincolnshire County Council and operated by a third party Contractor.

- No commercial waste is accepted.

- Soil, hardcore and plasterboard are not classified as household waste, but residents may bring 1 dustbin full per person per day.

- Facilities are available for non-recyclable waste.
- This site no longer accepts tyres. Customers are advised to take old tyres to their local tyre bay, or a breakers yard/scrap yard where they should be accepted for a small charge.
