Thames Road Waste Transfer Station
A traffic control system will operate based on odd and even number plates. Car plates with odd numbers can use the sites on odd dates and even numbers on even dates..
Ensure your visit is essential and consider storing your waste safely until national restrictions have been eased. Delays are likely. If you attend either site, you must wear a face-covering (unless exempt) and observe the strict social distancing measures.

Sometimes we have to close the site for around 20 minutes at a time to deal with a bulky articulated lorry load. If you wait patiently, we’ll open again as soon as possible.
