Tips for a successful visit
- The busiest times are at weekends, so if you want to come when it's quieter try during the week before 11am or after 4pm
- Separate your waste before you come - it will speed up your visit.
- If you bring your waste in plastic bags and sacks please empty it out of them, plastic bags cannot go into the skips (you can leave your plastic bags in a bin at the end of each aisle which is there specifically for them)
- Make sure that you put the right material into the right container - staff are on hand to help if you aren't sure where to put your waste.
