Sowerby Bridge (Milner Royd) Household Waste Recycling Centre

Mearclough, Sowerby Bridge. HX6 3LF.

Please note: There is no facility for the disposal of plasterboard, hardcore or rubble at this site. Please use Halifax, Brighouse or Todmorden.

Calderdale residents can use HWRCs to deposit items that do not fit in the domestic wheelie bin or bin liners. Important note: You must bring and show some identification that proves you are a resident.

There are separate skips for cardboard, scrap metal, general waste, 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 a vehicle with a large trailer, you must have a permit.

Re-use shop; "Revive"

We have a shop at Brighouse HWRC for the resale of good quality unwanted items.

  • This includes furniture, toys and homeware at low prices.
  • Every item for sale would have gone to waste. This means that each item bought contributes to a greener Calderdale.
