Allerdale Borough Council waste collections

Allerdale Borough Council have suspended their green waste and recycling collections for July and August.  This may lead to increased queuing at the Household Waste Recycling Centres and Cumbria County Council apologises for any inconvenience this may cause.  Find out more on Allerdale Borough Council's collection service.

Barrow Household Waste Recycling Centre

From Monday 19 August 2019 Barrow Household Waste Recycling Centre will be closed for 1 hour every day between 11am and 12noon.  This is a trial period initially for 5 weeks.

This will allow the main container exchanges to take place during the fixed 1 hour period and is expected to reduce the total number of unplanned closures for container exchanges throughout the day. 

Please plan your site visits for outside this time slot.  During busy periods, additional container exchanges may still take place outside the fixed 1 hour closure period.
