Located in the Liosbán Industrial Estate, the Galway City Council Recycling Centre provides a facility for residential (non-commercial) customers of Galway City to bring and dispose of all manner of unwanted household or electrical items free of charge. Items that are accepted include: glass, shoes, clothes, cooking oil, motor oil, batteries, light bulbs, electrical and electronic equipment, ceramics and plastic toys. The opening hours are currently too short. Longer opening hours would make it more convenient for people to use thus reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.

Another recycling centre of this type should be established on the west side of the city to encourage greater use of this kind of facility.
