Stanton St Quintin

Stanton St Quintin Household Recycling Centre remains closed at present. 

We have kept Stanton St Quintin HRC closed as the number of car parking spaces has been significantly reduced. This, along with the already difficult traffic management issues at the site, means that we cannot safely open the site at this time without the risk of significant queues on the B4122 road, which is also close to the M4 J17 slip road. This will be kept under review and the site will reopen when the traffic management risks can be effectively managed. We recognise that this will be  frustrating for local residents.

People who would usually use Stanton St Quintin should travel to an alternative site such as Purton, Melksham or Lower Compton.

Please see www.wiltshire.gov.uk/household-recycling-centres-reopening-faqs for more information.

All sites will not be able to take soil or rubble, plasterboard, textiles or asbestos until further notice.

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.
