Tip ‘number plate’ checking to end on Saturday

Date published: 05 June 2020

The odd and even number plate system at local tips will be stopped from Saturday (6 June), but you still need to take proof of address.

More of the recycling centre points have reopened, after being closed to abide by social distancing guidelines earlier this year.

Now you can take household rubble (such as stones and soil), scrap metal, general waste (including small bulky items), cardboard (emptied and flattened), garden waste (no food waste), wood and timber.

Currently, electrical items and plasterboard are not being accepted.

Queues are expected due to social distancing measures, so only visit the recycling centre if you need to.

Ensure your items are separated so you can easily put them in the right container upon arrival.
