Waste and Recycling

Reduce, reuse, recycle

Recycling centres

Select your nearest recycling centre on the interactive recycling centres map, or select a recycling centre from the list below.

Before visiting a centre please ensure you have read the guidance on acceptable and non-acceptable materials at individual centres, chargeable waste and the restrictions that apply to vehicles used to bring materials to the centres.

In the event of extreme weather conditions the recycling centres may be forced to close at short notice, due to potential health and safety risks to site users. We will endeavour to update this webpage and the webpage of the closed recycling centre(s) when required but this may not always be possible. We would advise potential site users to avoid unnecessary travel during severe weather.

All Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) Closed until further notice

In line with the Government’s latest guidance, all HWRCs are closed from 24th March 2020 until further notice.

As an alternative, residents are advised to:-

  • Use existing District Council kerbside services.
  • Home compost.
  • Leave grass cuttings on the lawn where they will mulch down to provide nutrients.
  • Leave areas of grass uncut (the wildlife will love this!)
  • Avoid projects that generate waste (e.g. postpone clearing out your garage/shed or doing your garden make-over).
  • Store your waste at home until the Government restrictions are lifted.
  • Hire a skip/Hippo bag or similar.
  • Be responsible, do not fly-tip waste (fly-tippers can be fined up to ¬£50,000 in Magistrates’ Courts and face unlimited fines in higher courts, as well as community punishment orders or prison sentences of up to five years)
  • Use legitimate and suitably licenced waste management companies if it is essential for waste to be removed from your property. Advice on your legal responsibilities can be found at Clean Devon
