Household Waste Recycling Centres

Opening times and how to find Household Waste Recycling Centres in Doncaster and a list of household waste that's accepted at the sites.

There are six Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs) in Doncaster. These facilities provide a wide range of free recycling and household waste disposal services.

Household waste is typically waste that you would normally put into your wheeled bin(s) at home and items of furniture that you would normally take with you when you move house if they were in good working order.

Site operatives are available on site to provide assistance, if requested.

Locations and opening times

Please ensure that you arrive no later than 15 minutes before the advertised closing time to ensure that you have enough time to unload your vehicle and / or trailer as no vehicles can be on site after the advertising closing times.

Discrtionary "one-off" tips

Doncaster residents wishing to hire a vehicle, or owning a vehicle which cannot be granted a permit (with the exception of sign-written commercial-type vehicles), to dispose of household waste can apply for access to Armthorpe by pre-booking a "one off" tip which will be given at the discretion of the Council. All requests must be made in advance of setting off to the site and by no later than 4pm on Friday if you require access at the weekend: failure to do so may result in you being denied access to site.

To pre-book a discretionary "one off" tip please phone 01302 736000 and have the following information available:

  • name, contact telephone number and the address the waste is coming from
  • make,model,registration number and name of the hire company
  • the day and approximate time you would like to visit the site
  • a break-down of the items to be disposed off

Please do not start your journey to site until you have been contacted by a member of the Waste and Recycling Team who will check the information supplied is correct, and, at his/her discretion, give permission for the visit.

PLEASE NOTE a "one-off" tip is just one visit . All such visits are at the discretion of the Council and only two visits per year, 6months apart, will be allowed from any domestic property within the borough. If you own the vehicle which is eligible for a permit as the current system stands, you are advised to apply for a permit.
