The tidy tip will accept most waste including glass, wood, paper,cans and cardboard. They also take electrical goods and car and household batteries and general garden waste. They will take fridges, freezers and tyres but you will need a permit to leave these.
Some waste items are not accepted and include: Asbestos, trade/commercial waste, hazardous waste, sectioned trees (with a girth larger than 30cm) and animal bedding and faeces.
You can take a trailer or use a van or pick up but you will need a permit. These are free but you need to apply for one in advance and take it to the site when you unload.
The site is only for general household waste. If you have a large amount of waste, for example your are having building work carried out on your home and have soil, rubble, windows etc, this will not be accepted. Even smaller amounts of this type of waste may require a permit.
