Visiting the site
You need to wear a hard hat and a high visibility vest when you visit. Due to Covid precautions we can no longer lend these out, please bring your own otherwise you will be required to purchase these at £12 (including VAT) a set, payment by card only.
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.
If you’re a resident
You can throw away up to 500kg a year for free. If you go over this we’ll charge you for every extra 100kg using the guide below. We accept card payments only.
You’ll need a photo ID and proof of address to enter. A current driving licence will do for both, or you can bring a passport with a utility or council tax bill in the same name.
If you’re from a business
We’ll charge a minimum:
- £24 for garden waste
- £16 for construction waste
- £18 for wood waste or
- £31 for general waste.
Prices go up in bands of 100kg, and we accept card payments only.
You will need a waste carrier’s licence, please make sure it’s up to date and bring it with you.
