Amber warning for hot weather from Wednesday 10th August at the HRC's

We are monitoring the weather forecasts for this week and we may need to close our HRCs early afternoon if temperatures are too high for the site staff to safely operate in, so we advise you make your booking as early in the day as possible.  We will update any changes here and on Gloucestershire County Council social media as soon as possible.

The low-down on labels

You will find many different types of packaging labels and recycling symbols on lots of everyday items we throw away. They are there to help us to identify whether the packaging can be recycled at all and where they need to be recycled. 

Have a browse of the webpage linked below to find out what your recycling symbols mean!

Find out what the labels mean

Remember: not all packaging will have a recycling label, but this doesn't mean you can't recycle it!

Always double check with your council if you are unsure.
