Waste Sites Updates
Recently we have been working on improving our waste sites with an aim to manning the site in the New Year. Unfortunately, despite the time and expense that has gone into these upgrades, there have been several incidents of users dumping their rubbish in the wrong areas. This just causes more expense in trying to properly maintain the site.
In order to ensure that ratepayers funds used effectively, we have begun restricting hours to the waste site as of the 23rd October 2017. From this date, the waste site will only be open from Saturday to Monday.
When using the waste site, please follow the correct procedures. There are four areas for waste disposal, Waste Oil, Green Waste, Scrap Metal and General Waste.
If you have a mixed load and do not want to separate it, please dump in the ‘General Waste’ section (Excludes Waste Oils). Read more
