Recycling

Eden District Council will only collect Household Waste refuse bags that are tied closed. Untied bags will not be collected. All handles of boxes and bins should be disinfected before being placed for collection. For more information, please visit eden.gov.uk. Household Waste Recycling Centres have now reopened, with restrictions. For more information, please visit cumbria.gov.uk

All households in Hesket Parish have their household waste and recycling collected by Eden District Council. A copy of your recycling calendar can be found using this link and inputting your postcode.

There are also additional recycling facilities in most of the villages within the Parish. These have been adopted by the local community, in most cases the local Primary school, who are paid by Eden District Council to keep the areas clean and tidy. Please ensure that all items are placed within the appropriate bins. Fly tipping is unacceptable at these sites, and could lead to the withdrawal of the facility.
