You can also find responses to frequently asked questions around HRCs re-opening and restrictions online which will likely help with answering any enquiries Residents are also being politely asked not to burn their waste. Those lighting bonfires are respectfully requested to consider their neighbours, who may be suffering from the virus, recovering, or have underlying medical conditions as smoke may exacerbate their problems and cause complications in their recovery.

Your Bin Collection - what the District Council will and will not collect free of charge in

West Dorset.  The Council are now enforcing their existing Waste Collection Policy to

try and reduce landfill waste still further.  In the past, this policy should have charged for

Garden Waste and Commercial collections but has not always done so.

Ordinary Household Waste and Recycled paper, tin and glass: Uncharged

collection continues.

Garden Waste:  There is now a scheme for our locality: for £45 per year (240-litre

wheelie bin) or £34 per year (120-litre bag) you can have garden waste collected

fortnightly.  Sign up on-line at www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/gardenwaste

The free alternative is to compost it in the garden or take it to the Household Waste

Recycling Centre at Louds Mill in Dorchester for onward  composting. 

Commercial Waste:  That generated by business premises such as pubs, shops or

business units, has to be in a WDCC wheeled bin or prepaid blue "Trade" sack if you

want it collected by the Council.

Domestic properties offering  Bed & Breakfast accommodation:  Uncharged

collection as this is treated as ordinary household waste.

Commercially-run Holiday Cottages:  These should pay to have their waste collected

using either prepaid blue Trade* sacks or a WDCC wheeled bin.  As each situation is

unique, it may help to phone 01305 262117 to discuss which is the most economic

route to collect this waste.
