Waste from businesses and trade work cannot be disposed of at these sites. See Business, trade waste and hazardous waste for information.

The council can only take small, manageable amounts of soil, rubble and hard core, only if the waste is bagged, the bag can be no bigger than 25 kilos per bag, up to a maximum of 5 bags. The bags must be strong enough to be able to transport to the vehicle without splitting.
If you have more than 5 bags then you will require a skip, you will need to contact a skip hire company of your choice.
If you would like a quotation for the removal of your bags please call:
