Charges for certain items

There are charges for bringing certain materials to Dorset Waste Partnership recycling centres.

Commercial waste

Commercial waste is not accepted at this recycling centre at any time. Commercial waste can only be taken to our recycling centres in Swanage, Sherborne, Bridport and Blandford, with restrictions.

Van and trailer restrictions at recycling centres

Please note that van and trailer restrictions apply at our recycling centres. Vans must have a valid permit of a hire agreement of a maximum of 3 days.

Vehicles that don't require a permit can use a trailer, but the maximum trailer size is 1.2 metres wide and 1.8 metres long (approx. 6ft x 4ft).

Vehicles that require a permit and are towing a trailer are not allowed to access our recycling centres.

  • cement-bonded type only
  • double bagged
  • a maximum one-off deposit of up to three cement-bonded sheets of 1.8m x 1.2m (approx. 6ft x 4ft) or 6 bags maximum (a bag is equivalent to a small, plastic, sand/aggregate bag from standard DIY stores (or similar) that can be safely lifted by one person). 2 bags equate to 1 sheet if taking a combination of sheets/bags.
