List of recycling bank locations

Row of different coloured recycling banks

Latest news 13/08/2021 - Due to essential works at Morrison's the recycling banks have been removed for health and safety reasons. We are looking for an alternative site.

To complement recycling collections from home, there are a number of recycling bank locations across Cheltenham for recycling a greater variety of materials.

For more information about what can be put into the banks, please see our information page. We are now accepting mixed plastic at a number of the locations listed below - items such as yoghurt pots, margarine tubs, ice cream tubs, ready-meal trays and plastic fruit punnets as well as a whole range of plastic bottles. Please note plastic bags, plastic film and bubble wrap are not accepted.

Please remember to wash and squash any plastic bottles and rinse out your tins, cans and tubs!


Please note not all textiles banks at the below locations are in operation due to Covid-19. Whilst some of these are not accessible, please continue to bag your donations and leave at the kerbside with your recycling boxes for our crews to collect for you. Alternatively the household recycling centre is still accepting textiles, but please check the opening times and restrictions before you travel.
