Vehicles with trailers are also unable to use the site, and will be turned away by staff.

These restrictions do not apply to disabled people. Larger vehicles, or those with trailers, with valid disabled badges can enter the site – attendants will help you if you need it.

If you drive a van or larger vehicle, or have a trailer (less than 2m), you should use the Sort It centres at Thornbury or Yate.
