Crowndale Recycling Centre - Road Closure

Due to essential drainage works on Crowndale Road, Tavistock, Crowndale Recycling Centre will only be accepting garden waste from 4 July to 26 August.

Crowndale Road itself will be closed for these works, and the recycling centre will only be accessible via a signed diversion route from the Gunnislake direction. Because this route is not suitable for HGVs, the centre will not be able to operate its usual service.

During the closure residents can use Okehampton Recycling centre or Ivybridge Recycling Centre. To check locations and opening times, please see the Devon County Council Recycling Centres.

For more information, please see the Devon County Council news article

We apologise for the inconvenience.
