Recycling banks

In addition to collecting materials from the kerbside, the Forest of Dean District Council provides a number of local recycling sites.  We currently have over 30 sites across the district.  These sites are provided for household recycling only. 

It is illegal for businesses or anyone involved in any commercial activity to use the recycling banks.

A wide range of materials can also be recycled at the Household Recycling Centre at Broadwell.  This service is provided by Gloucestershire County Council.

For a full list of our recycling sites view our leaflet:

The recycling banks are emptied on a schedule depending on the usage of the site. If the recycling banks are full when you visit them please contact us on 01594 810000 so that we can empty them as quickly as possible.  Some banks are provided by a third party and may take a little longer to empty.

Please do not leave any waste on the floor at these sites. If you leave recycling or other waste lying around the banks this is classified as fly-tipping.  Fly-tipping of commercial or household waste is illegal and offenders will be prosecuted.
