The tip

We have two tips in the city. Clicking on one of the links below will give you information about either one, including a map, opening times, and what rubbish you can take there.

There will be set rules in place for the safety of staff and residents, please be patient and adhere to all site rules. 

Site rules

  • Anyone who is self-isolating or has COVID-19 symptoms must not visit the tip
  • Verbal or physical abuse of staff will not be tolerated and may lead to a site ban at both local tips
  • No trade or commercial waste will be accepted
  • Use of the sites is restricted to residents of the city only.
  • Drivers of commercial vehicles e.g. vans, camper vans with no seats, panel vans or similar looking vehicles will be asked to show a copy of their drivers licence – this is to ensure only local residents are tipping their waste once a month as per our old permit scheme.
  • Fly-tipping or non -payment of chargeable items (see costs section) will result in reporting the driver and vehicle to the Environmental Crime Unit
  • Mattresses only accepted at Hanford Household Waste Recycling Centre
