Sorting and separation of waste materials

In order to recycle as much as possible at recycling centres, staff may open bin bags brought onto site which would have otherwise gone into the ‘waste for disposal’ skip. Your co-operation is appreciated.

Household and garden chemicals

Princes Drive is licensed to receive household / garden chemicals and paint however, you must complete a chemical waste form in order to do this. Please visit our chemical waste page for more information on how to dispose of garden/household chemicals and paint safely.

Vehicle and trailer restrictions

Vehicle and trailer restrictions apply at all of Warwickshire’s household waste recycling centres. This effects anyone who uses a van, a commercial type vehicle, a pick-up or a large 4×4.

We are aware that some people may still want to dispose of waste in vehicles which are excluded by the vehicle and trailer restrictions. Facilities are available at Princes Drive household waste recycling centres on a chargeable basis. We will also accept commercial waste at this centre.

Vehicle licences and permits
