Recycling

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 here by using 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.
