There are limits to the amount of DIY waste that people can bring to our Recycling Centres.

This type of waste is generated through building or renovation work. It can include hardcore or rubble - small pieces of stone or rock used for building - or material left over after demolition. Even if this waste is generated at someones home, it is still classified as industrial waste. We accept:

  • Hardcore/rubble/bricks
  • Concrete slabs
  • Plasterboard
  • Roofing materials
  • Soil

From 24 April 2017 the new limit will be 6 black bags (or equivalent sized bags) per week for this DIY waste.

Remember, by using a van or large tralier a van permit will be required.

Our staff will question and, if necessary, refuse loads where more than a reasonable amount is being brought in or where they believe the waste to be from commercial or industrial origins.

Arriving at the site

Ask a site attendant to direct you to the correct area. You may find it easier and quicker to transfer other types of waste from your car if you bag up your material before coming to the site. If you do this, make sure you empty them as they cannot be recycled with the DIY waste.

For further assistance, ask a site attendant or give us advance notice of your visit via Council Connect.
