Wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

For health and safety reasons, PPE must be worn when recycling or disposing of your household waste at the waste transfer facilities. These are working industrial sites where council and high sided vehicles go. 

Previously we were able to provide shared PPE for residents to borrow, however due to Covid-19 we are currently unable do to so. You must bring and wear your own.

If you do not wear the correct PPE, you will not be able to dispose of your waste and recycling.

You must wear:

Please take your recent council tax bill, annual water bill or utility bill (gas, electric or landline telephone) relating to the property where the waste is from. You can bring a printed copy or show it on your phone. Please note mobile telephone bills are not accepted.
