There are two Civic Amenity Sites and twenty local Recycling Sites around the county.
For information about their locations and the materials that can be accepted at the different sites please see the Guide to Recycling, Waste Services & Civic Amenity Sites.
In addition, we have recently introduced four new Bring Recycling sites; three around Rutland Water and one in Oakham.
The Rutland Water sites are located at:-
- Normanton Car Park, Edith Weston
- Sykes Lane Car Park, Empingham
- Whitwell Car Park, Whitwell (meaning there are now sites at both Whitwell car parks)
All three sites accept cardboard, paper, mixed glass bottles and jars, food tins, drink cans and plastic bottles. Please note they are only available during car park opening hours.
The Oakham site is located at:-
This site accepts cardboard, paper, glass bottles, shoes, textiles and small electrical appliances.
We have recently introduced collection banks for small electrical appliances including phones, computer keyboards, DVD players, toasters, kettles, hairdryers, electrical toys, electric toothbrushes, irons, remote controls, DIY electrical goods, shavers, radios, video cameras, clocks and watches, small kitchen appliances and small electric fans. They are located at Uppingham Community College and Brooke Road and Westgate Car Park, Oakham. Larger electrical appliances can be taken to the CA Sites.
Please note there are no longer Bring Recycling Sites at Greetham Community Centre and Belton-in-Rutland. In addition, Tetrapak cartons can now only be recycled at the Co-op, Oakham as they can be put into your grey bin.
The managing and expansion of our Recycling Sites has been the subject of a case study by Smurfit Kappa Recycling UK who supply us with cardboard/paper banks at most of our Recycling Sites and both CA Sites.
