1. Bookings will consist of a 30 minute booking slot. You can arrive at any time during your booking slot but Centre staff will ask you to leave if you are still on site 5 minutes after that time slot ends. It is therefore advisable to sort your items before your visit.

2. You will be asked to confirm your Booking Reference on arrival.

3. Valid ID – Two forms of ID will be required.  Photo ID e.g. driver’s licence and a second proof of ID confirming address issued within the last four months (e.g. Council Tax bill, utility bill).

4. There will be a charge for the following DIY-type waste:

• All building and demolition material including plasterboard, tiles, windows, doors, timber and wooden flooring
• Bricks, rubble, stones and hard core
• Bathroom suites and fittings
• Fencing, sheds and paving
• Kitchen units, sinks and fittings
• Soil and turf
• Propane Gas Bottles

 If you are dropping off DIY-type waste, you will need to arrive at the Centre and complete payment before 3.30pm. Payment will only be accepted by card (no cash).

5. The Abbey Road HRRC has a Black Bag Splitting Area. If you are delivering waste, as opposed to materials for reuse and recycling, you should expect your bags to be opened and any recyclable materials will be removed prior to placing in a Recycling container.

You will find a full list of the Abbey Road HRRC Site Rules clearly laid out on the Abbey Road HRRC Booking pages.
