Brighouse (Atlas Mill) Household Waste Recycling Centre

Atlas Mill Road, Brighouse, HD6 1ES.

Since April 2023, there are new rules for the storage and disposal of upholstered furniture (includes sofas, chairs and beanbags).

Calderdale residents can use HWRCs to deposit items that do not fit in the domestic wheelie bin or bin liners.

There are separate skips for cardboard, scrap metal, timber, electrical items, green waste and more. Sort your waste before you visit and put it in the right skip. By doing this, you help to make sure that the most is recycled or recovered as possible.

There is a height barrier that restricts vehicles over 6 feet 2 inch (1.88 metres) from entering. Unless you have a permit, vehicles above this height will be turned away

Note: We operate a commercial vehicle permit scheme. If you use a van, pick-up or vehicle with large trailer, you must have a permit to use our sites.

What to take

  • Bricks and rubble: We will take this in small amounts, of up to six rubble sacks (20kg capacity) only. There is a charge of £2.50 per bag (rubble) or £3 per bag (plasterboard). This is payable at the HWRC by credit or debit card only.

    Please note: We are aware that a change in charging has been announced by Defra. We await clarification on when this will affect our sites.

  • Cans: (Includes empty aerosols).
  • Car batteries
  • Cardboard: Please remove any plastic and polystyrene packaging and flatten the box before disposal.
  • Cooking oil
  • Electrical
  • Fluorescent tubes
  • Fridges & freezers
  • Glass bottles and jars
  • Green waste
  • Metal
  • Mobile phones: Please deposit in the electrical skip.
  • Oil
  • Paper
  • Plasterboard: The charge for the disposal of plasterboard is £3 per bag, please see bricks and rubble for more details. It is good for the environment to keep gypsum apart from waste. So, small amounts can be put in the skip that is just for this.
  • Plastic bottles, tubs and trays: No hard plastic, such as garden furniture and no plastic film products.
  • Textiles and shoes
  • Timber
  • Vapes: Please place these in the collection tube.

Resident permits

You need a permit for all vehicles at this recycling centre, which are free and issued at the site office. They must be on display in vehicles. (This is separate to the vehicle permit scheme.)

  • You must bring a valid driving licence or other photo identification;
  • and proof of address (recent utility bill) in Calderdale.Re-use shop: "Revive".

Re-use shop: "Revive"

We have a shop at Brighouse HWRC for the resale of good quality unwanted items. These can be donated at all household waste recycling centres:

Items we can re-use:

  • Furniture, homeware, clothing, bric-a-brac, sports equipment, tools and garden equipment.
  • Stuffed furniture, such as sofas, mattresses, armchairs and cushions. These must have fire labels attached, dated from 1988 or later, whether indoor or outdoor furniture.
  • Children's toys that display the CE mark on the toy or its packaging. It must show the manufacturer declares their product complies with European health, safety and environmental legislation.

Items we cannot re-use:

  • Due to issues with PAT testing and legal responsibilities around this, no electrical items can be sold. These should be put in the skip for electricals at the HWRC. Small electrical items like hairdryers, toasters and kettles can be recycled. Put these in your black box and they can be collected with your other recycling.
  • Safety equipment such as bike helmets, children's car seats, life jackets cannot be sold from Revive.

Every item for sale would have gone to waste via one of Calderdale's Household Waste Recycling Centres. This means that each item bought contributes to a greener Calderdale.

All items will be checked to make sure they are fit for purpose.

Shop opening times and days

  • Open: Tuesday to Saturday only, at the same time as the HWRC.
  • Closed: 30 minutes before the HWRC closes, to cash up and shut the till down.

Note: Pedestrians are not allowed on site to gain access to the re-use shop. You must park in the designated car park for the shop.

This January, we are delighted to have reached an important landmark: 200 tonnes of material passing through our doors. Please follow the Revive shop on Facebook for the latest updates!
