All our sites are open 362 days a year and only closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

When visiting our recycling centres please note the following:

  • Sites are only open to people who live in Barnsley so you may be asked to prove that you are a Barnsley resident
  • There are 1.83m (6 feet) height restriction barriers in place at all sites – if your vehicle is higher than this then the site operatives will need to open the barrier for you
  • You may need a permit if you are visiting in anything other than a car
  • You can only dispose of domestic waste from your own property. Important No business waste is accepted.
  • If our operatives suspect that any waste is not from your domestic property then you will not be able to tip and an enforcement officer may visit you to check where the waste came from
  • Please separate the waste to be recycled before taking it to the site
