Household Waste Recycling Centres & Local Bring Sites

There are three Household Waste Recycling Centres (dump/tips) in the Winchester district where you can take unwanted household items.

Changes to bring sites:

We have considered the capacity and distribution of our existing bring sites very carefully which has enabled us to make informed assessments about which sites can be removed and those that should be retained,  following the introduction of kerbside collections, which should be sufficient to meet most residents’ glass recycling needs. The situation will be monitored and the Council has the option of increasing capacity at our  remaining sites should the need arise.  Private bring sites, such as those operated by some supermarkets, are not affected by these changes: Current bring sites.

  • Local Recycling Centres (Bring Sites)

    There are plenty of places that you can take your household waste to be recycled, either at a large Household Waste Recycling Centre or a Local Recycle Site.
