Planning your visit to the recycling centre

What can I do to minimise journeys to the recycling centre?

  • Make your own compost at home using food and garden waste; read our guide to home composting and FAQs to get started.
  • When buying new products, check if the company offers a ‘take-back’ scheme where your old products will be taken away for disposal or refurbishment.
  • Some online community swap, donate and second-hand networks have re-opened; check online for selling and donating good quality used items to people in your local area.

 


Be prepared for your visit

Before you visit.

  • Where possible, please separate your waste into different waste types and safely organise within your vehicle. These measures will help limit waiting times, enabling you to progress through the site more easily.
  • Separate your waste into different waste types and safely organise within your vehicle to make it easier to unload and dispose of once it is your turn.

When you arrive

  • If queuing to access the recycling centre, please ensure your vehicle is not obstructing access for emergency services at any time and turn off your engine whilst queueing. 

What will happen inside the recycling centre?

  • On entering the site, please observe all signage including the speed limit.
  • Wherever possible site staff will assist with heavier items.
  • Remember children and animals must not exit the vehicle at any time on the site for safety reasons.
