Devon County Council's Recycling Centres are provided for householders to dispose of their bulky household waste.
For further information on your nearest Recycling Centre (e.g. opening times, acceptable material types etc), either:-
Commercial/business waste is not accepted at Recycling Centres, except for garden waste and cardboard which is chargeable (see Commercial/business Waste and Recycling).
For a list of contacts for commercial/business waste and recycling, see the online Net Regs Waste Directory.
If you are unable to access a Recycling Centre for any reason, a special collection of bulky household waste from your property can be arranged. Please contact your local district/city council for further details.
Reasonable assistance will be provided at Recycling Centres when requested.
As the Waste Disposal Authority, Devon County Council provides Recycling Centre facilities for its customers resident within Devon's authority area (this excludes Plymouth City Council and Torbay Borough Council areas).
There is no entitlement for Devon residents to dispose of waste at a Recycling Centre operated by another Waste Disposal Authority.
In order to prevent potential challenge and conflict, please therefore only use Recycling Centres located within your Local Authority area.
