ON ARRIVAL

The entrance to our yard can be found at the end of Greenbank Road at the junction with Gorse St. If you are not already registered with us, please park in the car park situated on the right when you drive through the gates and go up the stairs to the office reception window where the team will be happy to explain the registration procedure.

If you are already registered and have ferrous metals drive on to the “inward” weighbridge up to the stop sign, leave your vehicle on the bridge and go up the stairs to the weighbridge window with your EMR loyalty card and the weighbridge operator will weigh you in and direct you to where to go next. If you are bringing non-ferrous metals please drive straight ahead to the non-ferrous area to the left of the weighbridges.
