Commercial cardboard accepted at Lower Polmaise

Businesses can now bring cardboard to the Lower Polmaise Transfer Station during normal operating hours (7:30 until 4:00 M-F; closed 12:30 - 13:00).  

Vehicles with commercial cardboard should go over the weighbridge -- not to the Household Waste Recycling Centre.  After weighing, they will be directed to the appropriate location within the transfer station for tipping/emptying.  The vehicle will be weighed again on the way out and the company will be charged £40/tonne for the cardboard they have offloaded.  One-half a tonne will be charged £20; One-quarter tonne will be charged £10.  Two tonnes will be £80.

Please note commercial customers must set up an account at the weighbridge by sending a letter to Waste Services requesting a weighbridge account and enclosing a copy of a valid Waste Carriers Licence (issued by SEPA/EA) before using this service. Information regarding Waste Carriers Licences can be found on SEPA's website : https://www.sepa.org.uk/regulations/waste/waste-carriers-and-brokers/.
