Vans, pick-ups and trailers
Vans and trailers must be pre-booked. You must give a minimum notice of one clear working day. Only one tip per week is permitted.
There is a weight limit of 2.5 tonnes gross for vans and pick-ups, this means the weight of the vehicle and the waste together should be no more than 2.5 tonnes. Large commercial type trailers will not be admitted. You'll need to provide proof that you live in Walsall when you arrive on site.
Long wheel base vehicles
We cannot accept any vehicles longer than 6 metres in length. Due to their size, these vehicles cause congestion and delays for other users by blocking off bays while unloading. We also have to consider health and safety issues for our staff and other vehicles from these larger vehicles manoeuvering on site.
People carriers and 4X4s
There are no restrictions on bringing domestic waste to our Household Waste Recycling Centres in large domestic vehicles such as 4×4s and people carriers. Larger vehicles which have been adapted to make them wheelchair accessible (WAVs) will be accepted.
No commercial or business waste is permitted on the site. You will be refused access if the operator suspects you are disposing of commercial waste.
