If contaminants are brought on site, you will be asked to take them away with you or if left, a contamination fee will be charged.
We cannot process tree stumps >30cm in diameter. All suitable waste is recycled to make useful products; either shredded or chipped on site to produce compost for use on our farm or biomass woodchip for fuel.
If it’s your first time visiting, the best thing is to come as a casual customer during normal working hours. Provided your waste is biodegradable green waste and free of contamination, you will be able to tip, and pay the gate fee in cash or by card. In return you will get a waste transfer note and VAT receipt.
If you intend using our facility on an ongoing basis, you’ll probably find it more convenient to become a member. As a member you will have unrestricted access and a faster turnaround thanks to our automated entry and recording system, and an annual ‘season ticket’ waste transfer note. To be accepted as a member, we need sight of your current waste carrier’s licence, which can be obtained for free in minutes from the gov.uk website. You will be invoiced monthly based on the record of your visits.
