Household recycling centre locations and opening times

Before visiting your HRC please see What you can bring to a HRC, and sort your items into different materials such as wood, metals, batteries, green waste, and electricals. This will help us recycle as much as possible, and reduce your time onsite. Please respect the teams on site and other HRC users during your visit.

Did you know - a third of the items found in the general rubbish skips at Wiltshire's recycling centres could have been sorted for recycling. 

HRC opening times

HRC opening days and times vary from site to site. See the tables below for the schedules over winter and Christmas. See the individual sites for location details and any scheduled road closures.
