All vans (including those used by residents for personal purposes) must report to the weighbridge on arrival at the site. Vans will only be able to deposit recycling and waste between 08.00 and 15.30.
Any resident who brings recycling and waste from their home in a van or other vehicle that would normally be used for commercial purposes must provide two forms of identification, from this list:
- Current/valid photo ID from a recognised agency (i.e. Passport, UK Photo Card Driving Licence, UK Government ID card or similar); and
- A recent utility bill (no more than 4 months old and please note that mobile phone bills are not acceptable) or your current council tax bill. Whatever is produced must show your current home address, the one where the waste you’re bringing comes from.
Please note – WLWA’s decision about what forms of ID are suitable is final and if you have any doubt about what may be accepted please call the site on 020 8965 5497 to check before travelling. If you cannot provide suitable ID you will either be asked to leave without depositing your waste or a charge will be made for the full load in accordance with the trade waste charge of £195 per tonne. If you have any questions about the use of vans or charging please call the site for advice before travelling.
