* Asbestos: All disposals must be booked in advance with the site. You must contact the site attendant at Ty Amgen CRC on 07971913289 to arrange a date & time and for information on the packaging requirements. Proof of residency will also be required. View further details about Asbestos disposal.

* Plasterboard: CRC’s will only accept clean plasterboard with no other materials attached, such as ceramics, insulation, wood, asbestos etc.  Residents attempting to dispose of contaminated plasterboard will be asked to remove the waste from the premises.

* Furniture, domestic appliances or white goods: We will accept furniture or domestic appliances provided they are not excessively large or heavy. Specialist white goods or goods that are known to be of commercial use will not be accepted (sliding roof doors, glass doors, appliances with locks etc). We recommend that you contact the manufacturer to obtain instructions on appropriate disposal methods.  Please note that white goods must also be empty and clean.
