Guidance for using the crunch service
The area used for the crunch will be cordoned off allowing access to the refuse vehicle and ensuring a steady flow of vehicles in and out of the site. This will save you time as well as making the service as safe as possible.
Our trained crew will be onsite to help you so for safety reasons please don't attempt to place items in the wagon yourself.
Please don't dump items at the crunch locations before the vehicle arrives as this will be classed as fly tipping. We ask that residents who arrive early with waste are patient and wait for the collection vehicle.
