We recommend reading our site rules before visiting one of our Recycling Centres.

Charges for certain items

There are charges for bringing certain materials to Dorset Council household recycling centres including DIY waste over specified limit.

Commercial waste

Commercial waste is not accepted at this recycling centre at any time. Commercial waste can only be taken to our recycling centres in Swanage, Sherborne, Bridport and Blandford, with restrictions.

Vehicle and trailer restrictions at recycling centres

Please note that vehicle and trailer restrictions apply at our household recycling centres. Restricted vehicles must have a valid permit or hire agreement of a maximum of 3 days.   

Check your vehicle is permitted on site.

Vehicles that don't require a permit can use a trailer, but the maximum trailer bed size is 1.2 metres wide and 1.8 metres long (approx. 4ft x 6ft).

Vehicles that require a permit and are towing a trailer are not allowed to access our recycling centres.

  • a maximum one-off deposit of up to three cement-bonded sheets of 1.8m x 1.2m (approx. 6ft x 4ft) or 6 bags maximum (a bag is equivalent to a small, plastic, sand/aggregate bag from standard DIY stores (or similar) that can be safely lifted by one person). 2 bags equate to 1 sheet if taking a combination of sheets/bags.
