HWRC site regulations - know before you go
HWRCs are for household waste and recycling only. Find out which waste types you can take.
Commercial, trade or industrial waste is not permitted.
Occasionally, site staff may ask you to sign a disclaimer form to confirm that the waste is from your own household.
Infectious or offensive rubbish will not be accepted.
Certain vehicles either require a permit to enter sites, or are not permitted access. Find out if your vehicle is affected with our checklist.
Health and safety
Children and animals must stay in the vehicle at all times. Be aware of vehicle movements and/or people moving bulky items.
Never throw items into a bin as staff may be working within it.
Take sensible precautions when moving and handling items, particularly if they are bulky and/or have sharp edges. Consider wearing sturdy footwear, sensible clothing, and gloves where appropriate.
Deliver and carry your waste in manageable loads to reduce the risk of manual handling injuries.
If you need guidance or assistance at any time, please ask the site staff.
All sites are accessible for disabled persons, and most have a parking space set aside.
If you require any assistance for whatever reason whilst on site, please ask a member of the site staff who will be glad to help.
