Recycling banks

Coronavirus (COVID-19): change to service

On advice from the government regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have closed all of our recycling banks across Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole. If the textile banks are full, please do not leave items next to them.

  • clothes

  • bags and belts

Electricals and electronics

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) recycling banks placed in various car parks across BCP Council have been removed.

Unfortunately, the containers attracted a lot of fly-tipping and vandalism, and were often heavily contaminated with various items that are not electrical and cannot be recycled.

Residents will still be able to recycle their small electrical items at the Household Waste Recycling Centres at Millhams in Bournemouth, Wilverley Road in Christchurch and Nuffield in Poole.
