Charities can also benefit from waste disposal and recycling services by either contacting us to set up a regular refuse collection service or they can dispose of materials at our HWRCs providing they can provide the following:

  1. Proof of residence of charity within the North Lanarkshire area

  3. Proof of registration to the Professional Collectors and Transporters of Waste through the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) - this is a free service for charitable organisations
  4. Provide details of vehicle registrations depositing waste at HWRCs
  5. Pre-sort material into recycling streams and minimise amount going to general landfill skip
  6. Book in at least 48 hours prior to arrival - 01698 403110
