If you have household waste that can’t be collected with your rubbish or recycling, you can take it to one of 14 household waste and recycling centres (HWRCs) across Cornwall. The sites do not accept commercial waste.
For safety reasons, no public pedestrian access is allowed through the entrance or exit gates at any of our HWRCs.
There are charges for some types of waste like asbestos, plasterboard, soil, rubble and tyres. Follow the link below for further details.
If you have a vehicle designed to carry goods, or a large trailer, you need a vehicle permit to use the HWRC.
We work with a number of charitable organisations, who collect reusable furniture and household items from our HWRCs. If you have items that could be considered for reuse, please speak to site staff when you visit.
