Like landfill sites, it is common to see large numbers of birds over recycling centres, often attracted by the potential for food and scraps amongst the refuse at such sites.
Gulls in particular are an issue at these sites, along with other problem birds such as pigeons roosting on high levels inside the centres themselves, as well as on external guttering etc.
Large interior areas can be netted to prevent problems from occurring. In addition to this bird wire, spikes and falconry can also be used to prevent birds from settling, fouling and causing damage, cleaning and hygiene issues.
