Type of waste
You can reduce your fee by separating out recyclables first and bringing your green waste separately.
Drop these items off for recycling on your way to the landfill. If you drop them off on your way in, they will not be counted in your fees calculation. Please note, plastics 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 are no longer recycled and should go to landfill.
Bulk recycling is open from 8.30am to 5pm.
Big weekend in the garden?
Separate out your garden or green waste. The charge for this is less than the charge for general waste as long as you have only green waste in your load.
Green waste is turned into packaged and bulk premium quality composts, mulches and mixes, and sold back to the public and businesses.
Green waste includes lawn clippings, weeds, tree pruning and logs up to 400mm in diameter.
For commercial vehicles and large trailers there is a certified weighbridge at the entrance to Spicer Landfill.
Any trailer with refuse exceeding 3 metres long, 1.5 metres wide, 1.0 metres high or has net weight >500kg will be weighed and charged according to the type of waste.
Note - Bulk recycling is open from 8.30am to 5pm
