Taking a trip to the tip?

On 1 April, the Household Waste Recycling Centre (tip/dump) on Eastman Way, Hemel Hempstead, switched to its summer opening hours: 10am – 6pm. The site is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

The HWRC on Northbridge Road, Berkhamsted, is open 8.30am – 4.30pm all year round. The site is closed on Thursdays and Fridays.

To help speed up your trip to the tip and reduce queues, please remember to save up your recyclables for a single trip and sort your recycling before you arrive on site. If possible, avoid visiting during school and bank holidays or early in the morning.

Nearly half the waste that is taken to the tip could have been recycled at the kerbside instead. Additionally, you could also pay for our Bulky Waste Collection service. If you'd like more information about what can be recycled from your home, please visit our bins and recycling homepage.

If you want to drop off household waste in a van, you'll need to apply online in advance for a free van permit. Visit Hertfordshire County Council's website to apply.
