Leicestershire County Council (LCC) run the fourteen Recycling & Household Waste Sites across the county and are in charge of waste treatment and disposal.
Kerbside recycling and waste services are run by district and borough councils. To find out more about the kerbside services where you live, click on your district using the links to the left. If unsure about the authority you fall under, use our interactive map on the Home page.
LCC is a member of the Leicestershire Waste Partnership.
