Visiting a recycling centre (tip) – points to remember

  • You can only use the site if you're a Barnsley resident.  You may be asked to prove that you live in the borough, so take a council tax or utility bill, a bank statement or your driving licence with you.
  • If your vehicle is higher than 1.83m (6 feet), site operatives will need to lift the barrier to let you on to the site.
  • You’ll need to apply for a permit if you’re going to the site in any vehicle other than a car.
  • The sites are primarily for recycling so you should sort your waste before you so so that it's easier to put into the right container on site.
  • We don’t accept business or trade waste at our recycling centres. You must dispose of this kind of waste through a licensed facility. Leaving trade waste at our sites is a criminal offence and could result in a £50,000 fine and/or two years in prison.
  • If you do try to dispose of anything other than household waste, an enforcement officer may visit you to find out where the waste came from.
  • If you behave in an inappropriate manner while visiting any of our sites, we'll exclude you from the site and may not re-admit you in the future.
