You are encouraged to, as far as possible, have your recycling organised in boxes and bags to help ensure your time on site is within the 10 minute slot.
In order to provide flexibility whilst managing social distancing on site and avoid long queues please don't arrive more than 10 minutes ahead of you time slot or 10 minutes after the end of your time slot. Our staff will do all they can to ensure you can recycle your waste. Whenever you arrive there may be a short queue, we appreciate your patience.
