RRC Conditions - Rejected Loads

The contents of the load must be disclosed accurately on entry to the Resource Recovery Centre (RRC). Charging for these products is based on the products in the load, along with the method by which they are unloaded. See Conditions – Sorted Loads.



Rejected Loads


If a particular waste type is disclosed at the weighbridge and is found on inspection to be contaminated with other products the customer will be charged at the highest rate relating to the unloaded contents.


For example, if a vehicle enters with a load designated as Clean Timber and manufactured timber (inert waste) is found, the whole load will be charged as Inert – Mixed


If the customer chooses to have their vehicle reloaded, a reload fee will apply (see RRC Fees & Charges document).
