What we take

We ask you to help us recycle as much material as possible by separating it and using the appropriately labelled containers at the HWRC. If you are unsure where a particular item should go please ask a member of staff who will advise.

The following materials are recycled, composted, reused or recovered:

If you have a large amount of waste to dispose of you can either hire a skip or take it to a commercial site.

Traders and businesses

Traders and businesses are allowed to legally dispose of trade waste by using the weighbridge at the commercial waste entrance of the site and paying the appropriate charge.

Waste from Charities

Charities are not permitted to use the Household Waste Recycling Centre (HWRC). However, charities can apply for a permit (restrictions apply) to access the Waste Transfer Station (next to the HWRC) via the commercial weighbridge. Charities must have a retail presence in Poole and can only deposit household waste donated from residents within the Borough of Poole.
