Check your vehicle number plate

We expect the Recycling Centres will be extremely busy. We are temporarily introducing an odd and even number plate system to help us manage traffic and reduce queuing.  This means you can only visit the Recycling Centres on certain days depending on your vehicle number plate.

If the last number of your vehicle number plate is 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8 this is an even number plate.

If the last number of your vehicle number plate is 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 this is an odd number plate.
