The site has had similar opening hours since it opened.

The site only closes on certain Bank Holidays, mainly New Years Day, Senior Race Day, Tynwald Day, Christmas Day & Boxing Day.

The site goes to great lengths to increase recycling and re-use at the site, and in doing so, save the rate payers in our area money. Please sort your waste before coming to the site, if it can be recycled or reused, there will be a place for it at the site, but do not just throw it in the EfW skip.

From 1st October 2019, the prices for disposal of TV's will increase to £14, these charges are beyond our control and are set under a contract with the Isle of Man Government.

The site only charges for certain individual items, these are:

TV's, Monitors, Laptops, Fridges & Freezers and oil tanks.

​Most charges are set by a Government Contract and are the same at all the Island's Amenity Sites.

WEATHER WARNING: with high winds due on the Island in the next few days, it may be necessary to close the site if the high winds make it unsafe for the public and staff.
