Recycling sites and points

Please remember the cost of processing every item taken to a recycling site has to be paid for through council tax.  Please help keep council tax down by, for example, home composting or donating items with more life in them to charity shops, Freecycle or furniture reuse stores

•    Only Household Waste can be taken to sites, except to specific sites with separate, designated Business Waste areas.  You may be asked to complete a Household Waste Declaration Form to confirm you only have household waste.
•    When materials are deposited at recycling sites, these become the property of the site contractor, Viridor. Separated items are passed on for reuse or recycling and where this is not possible, disposed to costly, wasteful landfill.

•    Please note, if you are bringing materials in a commercial van or trailer, you may be asked about the source of the waste and to sign a household waste declaration form.
•    Please sort recycling and refuse before visiting site.  Staff may open black bags or other containers to ensure all the recycling has been separated.
•    If you have a neighbour or relative who cannot carry their own items, you can take them for them but it must be as an unpaid service.
•    Closed Circuit Television and Automatic Number Plate Recognition systems operate on all sites for safety and security.

•    *** PLEASE NOTE – Sites may close for a few minutes, from time to time, for your safety while heavy machinery is operating ***
