Landfill Diversion Areas
The designated materials must be placed in the designated diversion area (i.e. corrugated cardboard in the cardboard recycling bin; stove in the white goods area etc.).
Please note that all waste delivered to the landfill sites may be salvaged by the landfill operating contractor. Materials of a confidential nature should be shredded or delivered directly to a destruction/recycling facility.
