Accessibility

The staff on site can provide you with assistance to help you remove waste from your vehicle and place it in the skips. Don’t forget, if you are in receipt of certain benefits e.g. Disability Living Allowance (DLA) we can collect bulky items| free of charge from your home. If steps are a problem try the Greenfield site - it doesn’t have any.
