Warwick District Council has made the decision to permanently remove all recycling bank sites. These recycling banks were put in place before kerbside collections were introduced and with ongoing issues with all sites including overflowing bins, contamination of bins with non-recyclable items, bins being used by local businesses and frequent fly-tipping of waste around the bins, the Council made the decision to remove them permanently.

The removal took place week commencing 22nd February 2021.

Any waste being left at sites now that the banks have been removed is being classed as fly-tipping, which is illegal. Offenders may be prosecuted, receive an unlimited fine and/or imprisonment.

Please use your kerbside recycling collection or take your waste to a Household Waste Recycling Centre. To find your nearest Recycling Centre and to book a slot visit Warwickshire County Council's website.
