The site, at the old Highways depot on Exeter Road (otherwise known as the Marsh), will accept bulky garden waste and produce compost for local collection and use.

What we can accept

  • Soft Green waste material you can cut with mower or clippers
  • Twiggy brushwood material that can be cut with loppers, saw or power tools
  • Large branches material that came from a plant larger than you!

We can’t accept:

  • stumps, vines, bamboo, Japanese knotweed or any other materials whatsoever

Compost should be available in about 6 months for a donation. More details will follow.

Opening times
The site will initially be open on Sunday mornings from 10am to 1pm and be run by volunteers.

Volunteers needed
We have a list of people willing to give a morning every couple of months to open up, assist visitors and lock up at the end.
However, we are still very keen to hear from others interested in assisting.

For more information or to volunteer contact Ross on 01364 73665 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.


It’s been a long process and has involved:

  • A lease from Dartmoor National Park Authority
  • A licence from the Environment Agency
  • Over £5,000 raised in funds and grantsRegistration with DCC as a recycling site
  • Planning permission

Thanks need to go to many organisations for support and assistance – but particularly South Brent Parish Council and South Brent Action and Community Group.
