There are no commercial waste disposal sites within Torbay but the Household Waste and Recycling Centre can take commercial waste for a fee.

All commercial waste must be taken to the weighbridge and a charge will be made for depositing commercial waste. All commercial customers need to bring Hi-Visability jackets with them when tipping commercial waste at the transfer station as no one will be allowed to tip without them.

Vehicles carrying commercial waste will not be allowed into the household waste recycling area.

The weighbridge is closed on bank holidays including Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day. 

Using the public weighbridge

  • On arrival you must inform the site team at the main gate that you wish to use the weighbridge. You will be directed to the weighbridge for your vehicle to be weighed, and whilst this is happening you must remain in the vehicle at all times.
  • Controls will be in place to allow you to approach the weighbridge for payment when instructed.
  • You must be a registered waste carrier to dispose of waste on site, evidence of this will be required.
  • Where possible electronic payment method is preferred (though we will not turn cash payments away). 
  • On site staff will tell you where to unload.
  • Please bring your own hi-vis vest and wear it when you are out of the vehicle – if you do not have one you will not be allowed to unload and will be asked to leave.
  • Price for a public weigh will be £12.00
