Accepted waste

Dulverton Waste Management (DWM) only accepts waste from preapproved customers who have commercial size vehicles (trucks).   

The DWM landfill is not open to members of the public. Members of the public are advised to contact their local waste transfer station or waste company for waste disposal options.

 

Waste we can accept

DWM is able to accept the following waste:

 

Controlled wastes

Controlled waste is the most hazardous category of waste and includes those wastes that exhibit toxicity, chemical or biological reactivity, environmental persistence, or the ability to bio-accumulate or enter the food chain.  It is environmentally unacceptable to dispose of them by the same means as we dispose of the more common by-products of our everyday lives.

Controlled wastes may be accepted by DWM, but will often require prior Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) approval.  Transport of controlled waste must be via an EPA approved carrier. 

In order to determine if your waste is a controlled waste, please refer to the following link:
