Lynnbottom Tip

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:

Seven days a week, including bank holidays. Closed on Christmas Day.
10am to 6pm.
(Last updated April 2019)

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.
