Proof of address is needed to access the recycling centres and residents must segregate their waste as much as possible and dispose of it in the relevant containers on site.
Lorries or vehicles over 3.5 tonnes will not be allowed to use the sites and if waste is brought in a commercial type vehicle or with a trailer without a permit waste will not be allowed to be tipped.
Residents are able to dispose of small amounts of non-recyclable waste at the sites and as far as possible any recyclables must be separated and placed in the appropriate container for recycling. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
