Rubbish and Recycling Centre

If you’re planning on dropping by our refuse transfer station in Lincoln Street please be aware there may be some delays at peak times. The summer clean-up season has seen big numbers of vehicles around the middle of the day on a Sunday, which has led to queues. Waste Management have introduced some new computer systems including paywave to speed things up, but the site is getting busier all the time. The morning-midday peaks are on weekends, particularly if it’s a nice day.
