Temporary closures at local household recycling centres

According to the Bournemouth Echo article, from the end of November to March 2018, many Household Recycling Centres in Dorset will be closing for a period of time to allow for ‘deep cleaning’ to be completed.

Whilst the cleaning is taking place, the individual recycling centre will be inaccessible for a few days.

Luckily the sites are not all to be closed at the same time, so it is hoped the inconvenience caused to local residents and businesses will be kept to a minimum.

  • Swanage: 29th – 30th November 2017
  • Wareham: 6th – 7th December 2017
  • Shaftesbury: 24th – 25th January 2018

Canford Recycling Centre is fully licensed to accept a variety of waste streams including inert, hazardous and waste electrical items. The site is suitable to most vehicle types because it has hard surfaces throughout.
