Safety and restrictions

We do not accept asbestos, gas cylinders, tyres.

Trailers over 3.5m in length are not permitted.

Vehicles above 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight are not permitted. 

Sites may close earlier if dark.

You cannot take waste onto the site by foot.

Do you need a permit?

You no longer need a permit for this centre.  We now monitor visits using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR), mystery shoppers and body camera technology.  

If you are a charity, please view our information on charity permits.

Reuse shops

To maximise reuse, we now have a shop at Ellesmere Port.  Items for sale include bric-a brac, small electrical items and some furniture, all of which are safety tested.  This will increase the amount of waste reused, which is preferable to both recycling and waste disposal.

What we expect from you and our code of conduct

We aim to provide the highest standard of customer service to our residents.  Please view our code of conduct (PDF, 746KB) for further information.
