Until further notice, the reuse areas of the site have been closed. Items can be brought to the site, but will not be reused, but disposed of.
We will not be baling cardboard or cartons, but we have put in place additional areas for the recycling of these items.
All railings, handles and bins will be disinfected daily
Hand wash stations will be placed at the site for the public to wash their hands
The site will only take card payments and will facilitate direct payments via bacs prior to depositing payable items (TV’s, Monitors, Laptops and Fridges/Freezers), no cash will be taken.
We hope everyone will understand why we have had to take these steps to safeguard the public and staff at the site.
