From the town centre take the A386 towards Plymouth, after negotiating the Drakes Monument Roundabout turn right into Crowndale Road (just before the mini-roundabout).
The site can be found on the left hand side after approximately one mile (just past the South West Water sewerage treatment plant).
Open all year round (except Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day).
Waste loading/skip changes may result in this site (or part of the site) being closed for short periods throughout the day. For your own safety, please remain in your vehicle and keep your waste on board until the loading/skip exchange is completed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Site staff will aim to provide assistance when reasonable; however they are unable to lift excessively heavy and/or awkward loads. For example, if a bulky/heavy item required 2 or more persons to initially load the vehicle then it will be expected that the same amount of people arrive to help unload the vehicle once on site.
Please ensure that your waste is separated before arriving at the site.
