Punchbowl Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC) will be undergoing maintenance works throughout November and December 2019.
During this period, some areas of the Recycling Centre will need to be closed off to site users and containers will be re-positioned to the garden waste bay.
Throughout the works, garden waste will need to be deposited in a container via steps. If you prefer to deposit your garden waste on the ground, your nearest alternative Recycling Centre is Exton Road HWRC.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused during these works.

Punchbowl Recycling Centre

Open all year round (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day).
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.
Follow the A377 out of Crediton towards Barnstaple, after approximately two miles turn left at Barnstaple Cross. Follow this road for approximately three-quarters of a mile, turn left at the crossroads and the site can be found on the left after approximately a quarter of a mile.
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 ensure that your waste is separated before arriving at the site.
