Household Waste Recycling Centres (Tidy tips)

Tidy tip redevelopment

Dunstable Household Waste Recycling Centre

Work is underway to transform Dunstable’s Thorn Turn – the area between the A5 just south of Chalk Hill and Thorn Road that runs from the A5 to the A5120 – into a new multi-use site that will include a new Household Waste Recycling Centre (tidy tip) and highways depot.

The new facility will replace the Frenchs Avenue recycling centre and Brewers Hill depot. It is hoped that the move will also help to reduce town traffic, as well as making the tidy tip easier to get to. Thorn Turn is expected to open to the public during spring 2018, and will have the same features as all the other new redeveloped recycling centres.

Watch a video to see the facilities available at one of our redeveloped sites.
