Wellington Recycling Centre
From 1 September, the end of cash and cheque payments means customers at all recycling sites will only be able to make debit or credit card payments for the disposal of hardcore, soil, tyres, gas bottles, vehicle parts, commercial waste (where applicable) and to purchase Revive compost. The requirement for pre-payment for asbestos and plasterboard disposal on-line via the SWP website remains. For full details see this news post.
