When a visitor is suspected of disposing of trade waste, we will check the type of waste they have in their vehicle. We will provide them information about how and where to dispose of trade waste safely, legally and in the best way for the environment.
We are working together with the council enforcement teams across Greater Manchester to monitor fly tipping. They will investigate and prosecute where appropriate.
If you think you will go over the limit, we advise you speak to your council’s waste and recycling team for advice on how to manage your waste. Most householders visit Recycling Centres around 12 times per year.
Yes, hire vehicles, whether vans or cars will have the same limits. If you are using a hire vehicle, please bring your hire documents with you, as well as proof of address.
You can visit more than once a week as long as you don’t go over 52 visits in a year.
The Recycling Centres are very busy, and designed for vehicle-access, not pedestrian access. There are no safe access routes or pavements.
Also, this is to stop traders illegally using the Recycling Centres who park outside and carry in their business waste on foot.
Following social distancing guidelines, SUEZ operatives will not be able to take any waste from visitors.
You are limited to the amount of rubble you can take in one visit. The limit is five (900mm x 600mm) rubble sacks per visit.
A restriction on the amount of rubble that can be disposed of is being introduced as it is recognised that rubble is one of the main types of waste that traders are disposing of unlawfully at the household waste recycling centres. Residents of Greater Manchester are still able to dispose of rubble if they have carried the work out at home by themselves. Any waste produced by tradespeople or builders you hired to carry out improvements, repair or alterations to your home is classed as business waste and can’t be disposed of at any of our Recycling Centres. Always ask a tradesperson to include waste disposal in their quote.
