Household waste recycling centres

New site layout for Penicuik Recycling Centre

To ensure social distancing, we have changed the layout of the Recycling Centre. Note: there is a new entrance.

  • Separate your waste before your visit.
  • On arrival, tell the staff what type of waste you have brought. They will direct you to the appropriate zone.
  • Only one vehicle at time is allowed in each zone, using a one way system.
  • You must stay within your zone. If you need to dispose of waste in another zone, you must drive there.
  • Only enter a disposal zone once the previous vehicle has left the area.
