Waste transfer station

If there is an enquiry in to the origin of the waste that is brought into the HWRC, the site operative may refer you to the lower site and weighbridge.

Drivers should report to the weighbridge office, where vehicles are inspected to make sure only domestic waste is being disposed and recycled. You may be asked for proof of address (such as a recent utility bill) and photo ID (driver's licence or passport).
