Large vehicles prohibited
Large vehicles including ‘Luton’ vans, tippers, and long trailers will no longer be allowed to enter the Household Waste Recycling Centre on Wallsend Road.
This is an essential measure to improve site safety, ease congestion, and reduce waiting times after staff and members of the public raised concerns. It will also help to prevent commercial or trade waste being brought in illegally.
If you own or are planning to hire a vehicle that is over 2m high, 6m long (3m long for trailers) or over 3.5 tonnes, you will need to find a commercial waste service instead.
