Information about how you can dispose and recycle vehicle parts at Somerset's recycling sites



Non-business vehicle parts, which are not classified as household waste, are accepted at the following recycling sites:

There is no restriction on the quantity of vehicle parts accepted. Deposited parts become the property of the sites operator and are not available for purchase or exchange.

Businesses, including traders dealing in vehicle parts, cannot use these facilities.

These cannot be accepted at any recycling site, because they contain small explosive charges: airbags, items containing airbags from steering wheels and dashboards, seat belt tensioners or belt assemblies containing tensioners.

Charges and payment

For charges for recycling and disposal of vehicle parts visit vehicle part recycling and disposal charges  (not open to traders). Charges valid from 1 April 2023.

See our on site charges page for charges for motor vehicle tyres.


On arrival contact staff before unloading, show them the items or materials, pay with a credit or debit card, and keep receipt.

Items that could contain asbestos

For example, brake pads and clutch assemblies, can be accepted as a vehicle part, see the price list for what we charge. These items must be double bagged in plastic, and sealed before being taken to one of sites below. Phone the site in advance to check that space is available.

Items that contain liquids

Items that could contain fuel, water, lubricants or other fluids, such as brake lines or cylinders, fuel pumps or heater water systems, must be fully drained, and any part that could hold an electrical charge, must be discharged.
