Household Waste Recycling Centre

Newport residents can take household rubbish for recycling, composting or, as a last resort, for burial in landfill at the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC).

The HWRC is free to use for domestic customers and residents may leave a maximum of 5 black bags a week in the landfill skips.

You can also recycle items at one of Newport’s recycling bring banks. 

The landfill site is for commercial customers and residents using large vehicles, trailers or vans.

See the current landfill charges.
