Household Waste Recycling Centres
There are four Household Waste Recycling Centres in South
Lakeland, which are provided by Cumbria County Council.
The facilities are in Ambleside, Grange-over-Sands, Kendal and
Ulverston and can be used for household waste and
recycling. The sites are attended and can only be used during
the stated opening hours.
At the Household Waste Recycling Centres trade waste is not
accepted. To ensure the exclusion of trade waste certain vehicles
are only permitted to use the sites subject to a permit
If you drive a van, pickup, flatbed, or tow a twin-axle
trailer up to 3 metres long you will need to obtain a free permit
in advance of your visit.
