Mangotsfield Sort It centre

The Mangotsfield Sort It recycling centre will be temporarily closed to the public from 1 February until 31 May 2017 for refurbishment of the transfer station yard. The Sort It recycling centres at Thornbury, Yate and Little Stoke are open as usual. Make sure you register your vehicle. If you have already registered, you can use any of the sites. Find out more in our Newsroom or read our frequently asked questions.

Mangotsfield Sort It centre can be very busy during mornings and weekends. Try visiting this site later in the day to avoid the queues or use the Sort It centres at Thornbury and Yate, which usually have shorter waiting times during busy periods.

There are some restrictions you need to be aware of if you wish to use our Sort It centres as well as rules for vans and trailers.

Please note: you may be asked to provide proof of residency. Always remember to bring photographic ID to prove your identity and a proof of address with your name on, to show you live in the area. If you cannot prove your identity and address then you may be turned away from the site.
