Recycling facilities in Ulverston

RECYCLERS who use the banks at Booths at Oubas Hill in Ulverston are being reminded that there will be no facilities there after 23 September due to construction work.

The site currently used to house recycling banks is to be part of a new restaurant with drive-through, which was given planning permission in June.

Residents are being reminded that there are two other recycling sites in Ulverston – at the leisure centre in Priory Road and the Household Waste Recycling Centre in Morecambe Road.

The HWRC in Morecambe Road, run by Cumbria County Council, is open seven days a week 8am to 6pm while the site at the leisure centre in Priory Road is open 9.30am-9.30pm Monday to Thursday, 9.30am-8pm on Fridays, 10am-4pm on Saturdays and 10.30am-6pm on Sundays.

The majority of items which could be recycled at Booths can also be recycled kerbside in people’s household blue bins and boxes.

Your blue bags are for:

  • plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays
  • shampoo, toiletry and detergent bottles
  • food trays and fruit punnets
  • steel and aluminium cans, food tins and clean aluminium foil
  • jar and bottle tops

Your paper and cardboard boxes are for:

  • newspapers and magazines

Your second blue box is for glass bottles and jars – not sheet glass, broken glass or lightbulbs

Residents are reminded that they can request extra blue bags or boxes if required.
