Items need to be loaded in a way that ensures there are stable & safe and all loads need to be secured, contained, and covered when delivering to your nominated facility. Try to pre- sort your waste before arriving so reusable and recyclable items can be clearly seen by staff. This will also allow you to easily sort your waste at the allocated areas as directed by staff. Ensure only acceptable items are brought in as all loads will be inspected by staff prior to entry.
Allocated areas for sorting are:
• Green waste/organics
• Household recyclables
• Expanded Polystyrene
• Mixed Waste
• Reusable items
