Waste and recycling collections over Christmas and new year

All waste and recycling collections will take place on their usual scheduled days. Bins/orange bags should be put out for collection by 7am.

Reuse shop

The recycling centre at Gypsum Close has a purpose built reuse shop which is run by our charitable partner, Age UK Leicester, Shire and Rutland.

The Reuse Shop has been developed and extended to provide improved facilities for our customers.  The shop is now fully open and has a new donations drop off, external canopy and bigger and better shop facilities! 

Help the environment and support the local community by donating your unwanted items. 

What items can be dropped off?

The shop will accept items such as:

  • bric-a-brac
  • crockery and kitchen items
  • clothes and textiles
  • toys and games
  • furniture
  • small electricals like, microwaves, kettles, lamps and so much more.

As long as the items are still in good working order, we will try and give them a second lease of life.

  • November - March (Winter) Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and weekends 8.30am to 4.30pm
