How to use the recycling centre

Before visiting the recycling centre, you’ll need to know how to use it. Here are a few tips:

  • Sort your recyclables into different bins/bags or containers for easy separation of waste type.
  • Don’t recycle anything that is hazardous or contaminated.
  • Ensure your recyclables are in the correct disposal boxes or bays before you leave the recycling centre.

Waste Processing

When you arrive at the recycling centre, you’ll find the weigh-bridge in the site courtyard. Our staff will confirm your booking & direct you to the weigh-bridge for the 1st weighing of your loaded vehicle.

Once an initial weighing has been carried out, sorted waste material types can then be removed & placed into the correct waste material bays.

When all the waste has been removed from your vehicle, it will then be reweighed and charged according to the waste types you arrived with. If you know an average weight of these materials you can estimate a disposal cost by using our calculator. If you are bringing more than one waste type & it collectively weighs less than 300kg, we will take an initial weighing & enter this as mixed waste. The combined weight will then be used to calculate the cost of disposal.

Public Weighing: (For a small fee, you can also use the weigh-bridge for accurate weight measurements of your loaded vehicle)

How to use the weigh-bridge

Please exercise extreme caution when driving onto and off the weighbridge & remain in your vehicle whilst using it. If you are uncomfortable driving over the weighbridge please ask one of our staff members, who will be happy to assist.

All passengers must stay in the vehicle during your booking on and off the weighbridge. Once your vehicle is parked on the weighbridge, the driver can exit using the step and support provided and walk to the ticket office window. Please provide staff at the ticket office all information they require, including the vehicle registration, your name/company name, the type of waste being disposed of and where its from. If you need help please ask for assistance.

The weighbridge has a maximum capacity of 60 tonnes and can accommodate vehicles up to 10m long by 3m wide.
