Holiday and Bank Holiday closures: updates will be posted nearer to the time of the next bank holiday.

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.

In line with these new regulations waste gypsum / plasterboard must be separated from all other items before being brought to the site. Plasterboard with tiles, insulation of any type and/or artex will not be accepted. Plasterboard will be recycled into new products.
