Using our recycling centre

Our recycling centres are organised using separate containers for different materials which are all signed. Staff can help you find the right place to put your waste.

To speed things up when you get to the recycling centre, it helps if you separate your recycling before your visit.

Please bring your waste in manageable loads that you can easily move to the containers. If you need extra assistance staff can help if asked, but you may have to wait at busy times. However, staff are not obliged to lift items. Please do not use large sacks as these block pathways and access to the containers.

Staff may ask you where the waste has come from if you are bringing large quantities to ensure it is your own household waste. In some cases you may be asked to sign a disclaimer form.

Please abide by the rules of the recycling centre and follow the advice of the staff.

Our recycling centres are organised using separate containers for different materials, eg bins for cardboard, scrap metal, timber and garden waste. Our staff will help you find the right place to put your waste.

We don’t have any height or width restrictions at any of the recycling centres, all have wide access and no barriers. Any domestic car, van, trailer etc. will be able to gain access.

Vehicles can usually get within two metres of the containers due to safety barriers and pedestrian walkways.  Staff will always be available to give advice, which must be followed for health and safety reasons.

For safety, please keep your children in your vehicle while you are at the recycling centre and wear suitable clothing, footwear and gloves when visiting the site.
