Charges for certain items

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

Asbestos

Asbestos cannot be taken to this recycling centre. Four Dorset recycling centres are licensed to accept cement-bonded asbestos: Blandford, Christchurch, Wareham and Weymouth.

Maximum one-off deposit of up to three cement-bonded sheets of 1.8m x 1.2m (approx. 6ft x 4ft). 

Asbestos must be pre-booked before being delivered onto site.

Commercial waste

Commercial waste (rubbish and garden waste only) is accepted at this recycling centre on Saturday mornings only, until 12noon. Please contact W&S Recycling or speak with site staff to ascertain prices for disposal.

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 or 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.
