Following the government guidance on staying at home, all household recycling centres are now closed until further notice.


Trips to the recycling centres are not essential. Read the government guidance: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/full-guidance-on-staying-at-home-and-away-from-others


This temporary suspension will remain under review and we'll work to re-open these facilities as soon as is it reasonable to do so. Residents are reminded not to dump waste fly-tipping is illegal. Neither should householders use an unlicensed waste carrier to collect and dispose of their waste during this period of service suspension. Where possible, please store the waste you would want to take to the household recycling centre until such time as the sites reopen. For more information about licensed waste carriers, see: https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/search-waste-carriers-brokers



Our waste and recycling collections services are currently operating as normal.

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
