You are encouraged to, as far as possible, have your recycling organised in boxes and bags to help ensure your time on site is within the 10 minute slot.
In order to provide flexibility whilst managing social distancing on site and avoid long queues please don't arrive more than 10 minutes ahead of you time slot or 10 minutes after the end of your time slot. Our staff will do all they can to ensure you can recycle your waste. Whenever you arrive there may be a short queue, we appreciate your patience.
Please note that the council household waste recycling centres are not licenced to accept commercial or trade waste. By using this service you are confirming that the waste you are bringing is from a household or non-commercial source. The definition of commercial includes anyone receiving payment for disposal of another property's household waste.
