Household waste recycling centres

Opening times and locations

Opening times

  • The sites are only closed on 25 and 26 December, 1 and 2 January.
  • Open as normal on all other dates.

Last entry for all vehicles is 30 minutes before closing time. This is to give you enough time to empty your vehicle and correctly recycle your waste before the site closes.

  • Stobhill Recycling Centre is open 7 days, 9:30am - 4:15pm
  • Penicuik Recycling Centre is open 7 days, 10am - 4:15pm.
    The site will be closed at no notice within these times to let us service the skips. We have to do this in opening hours because of the potential noise impact on local homes.

Stay local regulations

  • The Recycling Centres remain open at this time.
  • Please follow the public health and social distancing guidelines below.

Public health and social distancing

  • Ensure any COVID-19 contaminated waste is left for 72 hours (3 days) before double-bagging and bringing to site.
