Vehicle Entrance Policy

Restrictions are in place to maintain site safety and tackle illegal misuse by traders.

Following changes in Government legislation on increasing council's recycling performance and imposing restrictions on the amount of waste sent to landfill, we have found it necessary to modify the site to ensure maximum waste separation.

Additional waste bays have been introduced, and as a consequence turning space on site has been reduced, in the interest of the health and safety of both members of the public and site staff it has been necessary to introduce restrictions on the size of trailers entering the site.

The restrictions will ban:

  • trailers with trailer beds larger than 6 foot x 4 foot/ 1.2 metres x 1.8 metres
  • vehicles larger than 3.5 tonnes 

All cars, including 4 x 4's, camper vans and small trailers can continue to use the site as normal. Vans smaller than 3.5 tonnes can continue to use the site however checks may be undertaken at our discretion to confirm that the vehicle does not contain any commercial waste. If this is suspected you will be refused admission.

For the disposal of commercial waste or excessive amounts of domestic waste please see alternative waste disposal sites for further details.
