Multiple Visits to Gerpins Lane – Update & Advice
There is now a system in place at all East London Waste Authority (ELWA) sites (Havering [Gerpins Lane], Redbridge, Barking & Dagenham and Newham) whereby those customers considered to be visiting the site on a frequent basis (more than 7 occasions in a rolling month) are flagged up on the system and handed a letter on their next visit. This increased gate check is primarily to prevent council tax payers from having to foot the bill for trade waste and large amounts of restricted waste entering the site. The scheme is not designed to prevent genuine customers from accessing the site.
For more frequent visits (in excess of 7 per month) customers are asked to visit http://eastlondonwaste.gov.uk/accepted-materials and fill in the form. The team will then get in touch either by phone or email to either confirm continued access or to request more information.
Customers without internet access are advised to call 01708 434343 where details will be taken down and passed on to ELWA.
