Important information 18 October to 18 November 2019

Between 18 October and 18 November access to Salisbury household recycling centre (HRC) will be affected by the temporary closure of Stephenson Road, Salisbury due to roadworks. An alternative access route will be in place over the following weekends when the HRC will continue to be open:
  • Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 October
  • Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October
  • Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 November
  • Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 November

Salisbury HRC will be closed Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 November but will open on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 November instead.

We anticipate that there will be some traffic disruption during this period, and delays should be expected. 

Amesbury HRC (Mills Way, Boscombe Down Business Park, SP4 7RX) may serve as a suitable alternative.  Please note that Amesbury HRC is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Reminder: The HRCs will move to their winter opening times from 1 November:

  • Summer (1 April to 31 October) 9am to 4pm
  • Winter (1 November to 31 March) 10am to 4pm

If you have items that you think are reusable, do not take these to the household recycling centres. Instead visit our Large Item Reuse and Collection page for information on various reuse options in Wiltshire. Alternatively, you may be able to take other items to your local reuse charity or charity shop.

We are currently working with the Repair Academy to trial collecting and reusing unwanted household goods from the Household Recycling Centres. Staff at household recycling centres identify suitable furniture, bric-a-brac and white goods for donation to the Repair Academy.


If you plan to visit the site with a van, pick-up, or large trailer, use the link below to apply for a free permit.
