All vans, cars with trailers, pick-up trucks, and large four wheel drive vehicles will be asked to complete a declaration form on entering the site, declaring that the waste has been generated from their own residential dwelling.

In accordance with the Data Protection Act, all personal data is kept safe and secure

The Grimsby and Immingham recycling centres only accept a maximum of three bags of rubble, soil, inert materials, stones, plasterboard etc, from a car per day. Larger quantities or disposal from a van, trailer etc, is not permitted.

To determine the size of a bag an “airport hand luggage acceptance” system has been put in place.

  • If the bag of rubble slots straight in box this is classed as one bag
  • If the bag of rubble are small and you can slot 2 bags straight in, this is classed as one bag
  • If the bag cannot be slotted straight into the box it will be classed as two bags

The size of the bag should be 550mm x 850mm – this will slot straight into the box, however, you can test this yourself before your journey by placing a full bag of rubble in one of your dry recycling containers at home. If it slots in easily then it will be accepted.

Please note: vans and cars with trailers carrying rubble will be turned away.
