 Okehampton Recycling Centre

Please be aware that the Okehampton Household Waste Recycling Centre will be undergoing significant maintenance works from 24/02/2020 until 22/03/2020.

During the works, the site will be closed to the public on 24/02/2020 to 01/03/2020 (inclusive) and 16/03/2020 to 22/03/2020 (inclusive). The site will be open as normal at other times. Due to the scale of the works it would not be safe/practical  to open to the public on those 2 weeks.

The works are being undertaken in the quieter winter period to try and minimise disruption to the public as much as possible.

We will be communicating this to site users via leaflets/flyers on site, messages on the DCC website and social media and a press release.  Site staff will be present at the gates to politely redirect members of the public to alternative facilities  during the closure periods should they have missed the pre-notifications.
