Please take one of the following forms of identification with you when you visit.

  1. Current council tax bill
  2. Annual water bill
  3. Most recent utility bill (gas, electric or telephone bill only)

You will be asked to show these documents by a member of staff on arrival, as the weighbridge facility is mainly used by traders to dispose of business waste which is chargeable. Please be aware that vehicles are monitored and waste will be checked.
