Staff and Restrictions

There are limits to the amounts of certain types of waste that can be recycled at the HWRCs so please read the Waste Acceptance Policy for more information.

If you require assistance, please ask, as staff are here to help and all members of staff are trained in manual handling techniques. They have been instructed to only lift items of weight and dimensions that do not put their health and safety at risk. Therefore, staff may not be able to help you unload large or awkward items.

We hope that you appreciate and support our efforts to ensure that the health and safety of our staff, who are serving your local community, is protected.
