We don't allow access to the main site for pedestrians or bicycles - use the dedicated disposal area to the left of the main site entrance. We've placed bins here for general rubbish and some types of recycling.

You can also leave other items accepted on site, which our staff will place in the correct containers. Usage of this area is monitored to avoid misuse.
