Please note that you can bring other household waste items to the site but we are unable to recycle them at present. Lincolnshire County Council encourages the treatment of wastes as high up the Waste Hierarchy as possible. In order to do this site operators are permitted to reclaim for re-use non-electrical household items (with certain specific exceptions).

The rules

  • No commercial waste is accepted.
  • No clinical waste is accepted.
  • Soil, hardcore and plasterboard are not classified as household waste, but residents may bring 1 dustbin full per person per day.
  • Height barriers are in place to prevent commercial vehicles entering. You are welcome to bring your own household waste in an over-height vehicle, but you will be directed to a designated parking area to unload. Staff are happy to help and trolleys are provided.
  • Facilities are available for non-recyclable waste.
  • This site no longer accepts tyres. Customers are advised to take old tyres to their local tyre bay, or a breakers yard/scrap yard where they should be accepted for a small charge.
  • Children (under the age of 16) must remain in cars at all times while on the site.
