Lynnbottom Tip is one of the two centres that Isle of Wight residents can take their household rubbish to.
Near Robin Hill, the site can take household rubbish, as well as items for recycling, such as garden waste.
The operation of the site was taken over by new contractor Amey in 2017. They’ll be dealing with waste on the Island until 2040.
The site is sometimes misspelt as Lynbottom, or more formally called a the Lynnbottom household waste recycling.centre
Lynnbottom Tip Opening hours
Current open hours are split between Winter and Summer:
Seven days a week, including bank holidays. Closed on Christmas Day.
10am to 6pm.
(Last updated April 2018)
Lynnbottom reduced opening
The opening hours used to be split between Winter and Summer, with the open until 8pm in the Winter.
In Feb 2017 the Conservative-alliance voted in cuts to the opening hours to 4pm during Winter and 6pm in Summer (from 6pm and 8pm previously).
The shorter hours first came into effect Summer 2018.
Lynnbottom Tip Address / Location
Lynnbottom is near to Robin Hill, along Briddlesford Road. It’s on the left hand side a short while after you leave the roundabout.
A new campaign aims to help householders learn about the right thing to do with their rubbish and reduce the amount of household waste that is fly tipped by rogue traders who offer to take people’s waste away for money and then dump it.
Those residents who have been in touch asking when the Isle of Wight council waste calendar would be updated will be interested in this latest info OnTheWight has chased down.
Plans to end the service were reported by OnTheWight in February. Today the council announces the end of the mobile recycling unit, in the middle of the Lynnbottom Tip fiasco.
Leader of the Isle of Wight council is accused of being "out of touch" and "should be making it easier to reduce, reuse and recycle our waste – not slashing access to much needed facilities," say Isle of Wight Greens.
Leader of the council, Dave Stewart, says residents should change their behaviour to fit in with shorter opening hours - and claims Islanders have been sitting with "their flasks and their sandwiches to be first into the tip".
New measure will see no queueing in advance of the tip at Lynnbottom opening at 10am. The slip road will open for access once the tip is open.
Following questions from OnTheWight and pressure from readers, happily the Isle of Wight council and Amey have reconsidered their ban on trailers over 1.83m being taken to the dump. Overall length now considered.
Amey/IWC have quietly changed the rules on members of the public taking trailers into the dump. If they're judged as 'too long', they won't let you in after Monday. OnTheWight has asked them 'Why?'
The upcoming restriction on size of trailers allowed at the Isle of Wight's rubbish tips is a subject that has been raised before and will come up again.
Andy S-C feels strongly the Council should review their decision to ban trailers at any of the waste recyling centres (ie. the dump) and find ways to accommodate Islanders who rely on trailers to efficiently transport their garden waste.
A 4.99% rise in council tax, cuts to Personal Budgets for those with learning disabilities, youth provision budget slashed in half and reduced opening hours at the recycling centres are just some of the proposals in the Conservative-Alliance budget being debated later this month. Here's the detail.
The Lynnbottom tip has reopened to the public following groundworks to improve the experience.
