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 £52

per year (240-litre wheelie bin) or £47 per year (50 x bags) you

can have garden waste collected fortnightly.  Sign up on-line at

Dorset Garden Waste Collection Information

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 Dorset Council

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 Dorset Council 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.
