Bring Centres in Dublin City Council
There are currently two large Recycling Centres in Dublin City Council administrative area. There are a further nine Bring Centres which operate at a community level.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Kylemore Park North, Ballyfermot Bring Centre is closed until further notice due to fire damage.
Dublin City Council Bring Centres and Civic Amenity Sites will remain open during Level 5 restrictions to enable citizens to recycle in a responsible manner. Due to the unprecedented level of recycling during the pandemic, our frontline staff are under pressure at all times. We ask for your understanding and respect at this difficult time.
Due to high traffic volumes on Oscar Traynor Road, Gardaí from Coolock Garda Station have instructed Dublin City Council staff to close the Bring Centre at various times on a number of occasions in the past week. Unfortunately this situation is beyond the control of Dublin City Council, and is likely to continue for the foreseeable future. We will endeavour to inform the public of any further disruptions.
Recycling Centres and Bring Centres accept a more extensive range of materials than Bottle Banks and Bring Banks. They are generally located within purpose-built sites, are manned by permanent staff provided by the local authority or a private contractor and have restricted opening hours.
Ringsend and North Strand Recycling Centres
The charge for using these facilities is based on the type of the materials you are depositing and the size of your vehicle. Fees are charged according to the costs displayed on site by Dublin City Council.
There is no charge for vehicles carrying the following materials only:
- Packaging material such as paper, glass, cardboard, cans, plastic bottles, etc.
- All electronic and electrical equipment
A wide range of other materials is also accepted at both these sites for recycling, including bulky household waste, DIY rubble, household priority waste (e.g. paints, aerosols, pesticides) and WEEE.
Please note that carpets, curtains etc are classified as bulky items and are subject to recycling charges.
If you are disposing of bulky household waste at either recycling centre, keep in mind that you will be charged per vehicle - so it's a good idea to maximise your vehicle load.
Green waste (leaves, weeds etc) is accepted at both sites. For information on the charges for this service, please click here
When using these centres you are required to separate food waste from general waste. A food waste disposal service is provided at both sites.
Commercial or trade waste will not be accepted under any circumstances at either facility. For this reason, vans may be turned away.
Both North Strand & Ringsend Recycling Centres are managed and operated on behalf of Dublin City Council by Greenstar. Charges contribute towards the cost of recycling and recovering the wide variety of materials accepted at the facilities.
