The site accepts many types of waste including garden waste, wood, metals, paper and cardboard, soil and stones/rubble, mixed municipal waste and mixed bulky waste such as house clearances.
The following materials are not accepted:
- Materials containing asbestos
- Materials containing gypsum (i.e. plasterboard)
- Tyres Commercial and ammonia fridges
- Waste classified as hazardous (i.e. fluorescent tubes and chemicals)
How much does it cost?
The cost depends on the type of material and its weight (minimum charges apply). Our minimum charge will allow you to dispose of up to 200 kg. For weights above 200 kg the charge is calculated based on price per tonne. We have a separate charge for mattresses either delivered independently or included within mixed loads.
The recycling charges apply if the only items in the load are sorted recycling. A van load of wood or cardboard or green waste will be charged at the recycling rate but if the van contains general rubbish as well as the recycling the general mixed rate would apply.
The bulky items charge applies to any load of a volume over 10 cubic metres where the average density of the load is less than one tonne per 5 cubic metres.
|Current charges per tonne (£)|
|General mixed waste||£165 or £160 for account customers|
|Separated recycling (Cardboard & Green Waste)||£80|
|Wood||£165 or £160 for account customers|
|Mattresses (including spring & foam)||£15 per mattress|
|Fridges & Freezers||£40|

This allows anyone you authorise to tip waste on your behalf. At the end of each month, we will send you an invoice for all waste deposited.

What you need to bring
- Your waste carrier licence on first use
- A waste transfer note: We’ve made it even easier for you to give us waste transfer notes. Our online waste transfer note form allows you to submit notes quickly to us. You will receive a copy of the form too. The new form gives you the option of doing one form for each load of material or to cover a number of deliveries over a set period of time. For example, if you’re working at one location for 3 months you could do one waste transfer note for each type of material you’re bringing to the site. Alternatively, if you only bring one material (e.g. green waste) from one location you could submit one waste transfer note for a maximum of a year if you’d like to do so.
If you cannot produce these documents you will not be able to bring any items to the site. More information about your legal duties around disposing of waste from a business is available from the gov.uk website.
Health and Safety
The wearing of hi-vis vests or jumpers or coats and steel toe and midsole boots is mandatory on our site. If you do not have these items you will not be allowed to leave any items with us. Hi-vis vests can be purchased on site for £5.
All drivers delivering or collecting material from the site are expected to complete a short induction to help keep you and everyone else safe. The induction only needs to be completed once. Each driver will be issued with a card they need to show at the weighbridge every time they return to the site. If a driver cannot show the card they need to prove they have read and understood the induction otherwise they will need to be re-inducted.
We consider drivers to be responsible for any colleagues in their vehicles.
You can complete the induction prior to your arrival. Download the induction and follow the link at the end of the slides to submit a form. When you arrive at the site, simply let our team know you completed the induction online and ask for your induction card.
