We are unable to provide a map of the site indicating which bay to use for each material type, as the bay uses vary depending on demand. For example, on a dry summer weekend, we may dedicate three bays to garden waste. The staff on the gate will direct you to the correct bay and there are other staff on hand to help you unload your waste.
Plymouth residents with domestic cars are permitted free of charge. Vans and those towing trailers disposing of domestic waste are accepted providing they have a current van or trailer permit. This permit system is not for commercial waste, please visit our trade waste page for information on disposing of trade and commercial waste.
*This site is open for Plymouth residents to visit and dispose of waste, however the offices are not and will be closed at lunchtimes and outside of normal office hours.
