Temporary Arrangements - Flintshire Household Recycling Centres

We are pleased to announce that Flintshire County Council has successfully obtained funding from Welsh Government to redevelop its Household Recycling Centres.

As from the 9th January 2017 both Buckley and Mold Household Recycling Centres will close for a period of 3 months, for redevelopment. The sites will open on 14th April 2017 and will provide an improved customer experience with improved traffic flow and easy step free access to a wider range of recycling skips.

The temporary recycling park at Queensferry will close to the public from 1pm Thursday 13 April.

We would like to thank you for your patience during this time.

Reduce landfill – donate it!

Local charity Refurbs Flintshire  (01352 734111) can collect re-usable furniture and electrical items from your doorstep for free.  Alternatively, advertise them on your local Freecycle / Freegle website.
