This site will not accept waste from Torbay residents
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.
Coming from Exeter on the A380: turn right at Penn Inn Roundabout towards Newton Abbot. At the second set of lights turn right into Brunel Road Industrial Estate. Go straight across the mini roundabout and take the next right turn. The site is at the end of the road.
From Newton Abbot town centre: follow the signs for Forde House (District Council offices). Turn left into Brunel Road Industrial Estate. Go straight across the mini roundabout and take the next right turn. The site is at the end of the road.
Due to budget reductions, residents of Torbay will no longer be able to use Brunel Road Recycling Centre.
As residents of Torbay pay their Council Tax to Torbay Council, they do not contribute to the running costs of the site. We cannot afford to process waste from outside the county’s local authority area. Therefore only Devon County Council residents are permitted to use this Recycling Centre.
Security staff will be enforcing this restriction. Torbay residents are kindly asked to use Torbay household waste recycling centre located on Tor Park Road, Paignton.
Open all year round (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day)
Waste loading/skip changes may result in this site (or part of the site) being closed for short periods throughout the day. For your own safety, please remain in your vehicle and keep your waste on board until the loading/skip exchange is completed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Site staff will aim to provide assistance when reasonable; however they are unable to lift excessively heavy and/or awkward loads. For example, if a bulky/heavy item required 2 or more persons to initially load the vehicle then it will be expected that the same amount of people arrive to help unload the vehicle once on site.
Please note that resale shop transactions over £10 must be made by card. This does not apply to chargeable waste payments.
Please ensure that your waste is separated before arriving at the site.
