All households in Hesket Parish have their household waste and recycling collected by Westmorland and Furness 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 Westmorland and Furness 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.
