Vans, pick-ups and trailers

Vans and trailers must be pre-booked.  A minimum of one clear working days notice must be given, and only one tip per week will be permitted. To make an appointment ring 07870 253088. Lines are open from 9-00am to 5-00pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays.  
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.  Proof that you live in Walsall will be required 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 & 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 4×4’s and people carriers.  Larger vehicles which have been adapted to make them wheelchair accessible (WAVs) will be accepted.


Trade waste
No trade or business waste is permitted on the site. You will be refused access if the operator suspects you are disposing of trade waste.
