Do I need to sort my household rubbish and separate out the recycling?
Yes, please do this before you come. You should separate out glass, plastic bottles and tubs, cartons, tin cans and paper and card.
Do I have to pay to bring my rubbish to the Household Recycling Centre?
If you are bringing items such as wood, rubble, plastic doors or window frames, kitchen units or bathroom suites, you will need to pay a small fee. You can check the full list of items and charges on our website.
To help prevent delays and reduce contact at payment machines, we are waiving some of the usual charges for non-household waste. You will not be charged for up to 20kg of rubble or 5kg of wood.
How do I pay for bringing items such as wood, DIY waste or window frames?
There are chip and pin card payment terminals at the Household Recycling Centre. The machines are sanitised regularly. We can’t accept cash or cheque payments.
Why can’t I bring a van or twin axle trailer to the Household Recycling Centre? It’s a personal vehicle, not a trade vehicle.
If you have a permit for your van or twin axle trailer, you will be allowed to book an appointment. You can apply for a permit on our website. You will need to tell us your permit number when you book your appointment.
