Safety and assistance
Sort your waste before you travel so:
- your visit is as brief is possible
- you put the right stuff in the right skip
When you arrive
Staff will ask what items you have with you then direct you to the unloading area.
They may also ask you to fill in a form to certify your waste is not commercial waste.
Staff will offer help and advice. However you are responsible for offloading your waste (including bulky or heavy items) and ensuring it goes in the right container.
Please stay one metre away from others at all times and be kind to site staff.
Anyone not following site rules will be asked to leave.
- No wheeled bins - emptying wheeled bins into skips is unsafe
- Ensure that you are finished offloading any material before closing time
No pedestrian access. The volume of traffic entering and leaving the centre can make pedestrian access unsafe.
Help with unloading items
Please bring someone with you if you need help offloading items at the centre.
We are unable to provide physical assistance. This is so we can:
- manage the risk of injury to our staff
- make sure they are available to monitor site rules are being followed
- ensure staff are visible to visitors requiring advice
Householders can collect up to three bags a day, using their own bags.
Transit-type vans and trailers must pre-book and all customers must have a pre-paid disposal voucher. Details at commercial waste at recycling centres.
