How to book a slot at Somerley recycling centre
Verwood residents wanting to visit the ‘tip’ will need to book a slot in advance starting today (Monday 15th June 2020).
Hampshire County Council, owner of the Household Waste Recycling Centre at Somerley, has introduced a pre-booking system to avoid large queues forming along the B3081, which became an issue in recent weeks.
Verwood residents, plus those in neighbouring East Dorset areas including Three Legged Cross and Alderholt, do not need to register their car, themselves or their details but they do need to visit a web page before visiting.
Once there, enter your location (Verwood will do), then select Somerley as the centre you’d like to visit. If you are lucky, you’ll have the opportunity to pick a 30 minute slot within the next 48 hours, 9am till 6pm.
If you do not see any availability, it means the next two days are fully booked. Only two days at a time are being released, so it is not possible to book a slot ahead of this time period.
Only one visit per week per household will be allowed and restrictions which have been in place since reopening are still active.
You can also call 02380 179 949, Monday to Friday 9am to 5:30pm to reserve a slot. See more details here.
In addition, any East Dorset resident can use a Household recycling centre operated by BCP Council (Christchurch, Millhams and Nuffield) if you take proof of address, or those owned by Dorset Council.
