återvinningscentral


Explanation:
Would be where you dispose of your waste. In other words, this is the Swedish equivalent of "waste station".
Återvinning = recycling

This is the Swedish logistic of how this is handled. Reference in Swedish below.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
disagree  Sven Petersson: "waste station">"återvinningscentral", but "waste site">"tipp". Use of "återvinningscentral" makes nonsense of sentence!
