Temporary changes to our access policy are in place due to coronavirus. All vans and trailers (including single axle trailers) must make an appointment to visit a recycling centre.

From Monday, 12 April, we are easing restrictions and will be accepting inert waste at our recycling centres. You will not be required to have a permit but if delivering inert waste in a van or using a trailer you will need to make an appointment. 

See information about how our waste services are affected by coronavirus.
