Bins & recycling
We are changing the way we collect refuse and recycling bins from all households in South Tyneside.
The opening times for the Recycling Village change on Monday 1st April to 9am to 7.30pm.
If you are using a van, pick-up or trailer to drop-off your waste at the Recycling Village, you will need to apply for a permit first.
There are £10,000 of prizes to be won when you recycle your aerosols, glass jars and food and drink cartons.
Find recycling sites in South Shields, Boldon, Cleadon, Whitburn, Hebburn and Jarrow.
We can collect unwanted household items that are too big or heavy to put in your bin.
Asbestos, clinical waste, commercial waste, fly-tipping, hazardous waste, litter.
It's now even easier to recycle your electrical appliances.
