Site Description:

When visiting any Somerset recycling site with your household waste, your vehicle or trailer may need a permit. Both vehicle and trailer size are restricted. Permits are free, only available to Somerset residents, and must be displayed on all visits. Please apply for a permit before you bring your waste.

Charges must be paid by card – not cash or cheque – at all sites for disposal of materials not classified as household waste: asbestos; gas bottles; hardcore, including stone, rubble, clay, tiles, ceramic/porcelain sinks, baths, toilets and construction materials; plasterboard; soil; tyres and vehicle parts. Click here for more information on site charges.

There is no charge for the disposal of household waste.

Call the recycling site in advance if taking bulky, hazardous or unusual items, to check disposal requirements or capacity.

All centres are closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

All recycling sites accept natural undecorated Christmas trees for composting.
