What can I recycle at Shaftesbury Household Recycling Centre?
Charges for certain items
There are charges for bringing the following materials to Dorset Waste Partnership household recycling centres:
- hardcore and rubble
- asbestos (cemented bonded)
- gas bottles
Excluding asbestos there is no longer a limit on how much of each type of material can be brought onto site, within reason, though material strictly cannot come from commercial activity.
Garden waste collection
Save yourself the trip to the household recycling centre with our popular fortnightly garden waste collection: apply online for fortnightly garden waste collection.
Bulky waste collection
If you have larger items such as a fridge, old sofa or bed and do not have suitable transport to take it to the household recycling centre, you can request a bulky waste collection.
The site is operated by our contractor, W&S Recycling.
