Commercial Waste

There are no disposal sites in Torbay but the Recycling Centre at Tor Park Road, Paignton is available to receive commercial waste for a fee.

All commercial waste must be taken to the weighbridge and a charge will be made for depositing. Customers must bring a hi-visibility jacket with them when tipping commercial waste at the transfer station - no one will be allowed to tip without one.

Vehicles carrying commercial waste are not permitted in the household waste recycling area. Please see the weighbridge opening hours below:
