Size Restrictions

Size restrictions apply to some materials:

  • Stumps having a root ball dimension (not trunk diameter) in excess of 1 metre are not acceptable.
  • Concrete having a dimension in excess of 1.2 metres is not acceptable.
  • Dimension lumber, poles, pilings and the like shall not have any dimension in excess of 3 metres.
  • Sections of docks, decks and similar fabrications shall not be greater than 1.5 metres by 3 metres x 30 cm thick.

The decision of Ecowaste’s Site Superintendent or Site Foreman on whether specific materials are acceptable shall be final. If you have any questions we recommend you call the Scale in advance.

These restrictions on dimensions are necessary to ensure the efficient and safe functioning of the landfill including obtaining optimum compaction and the avoidance of conditions which could contribute to an incidence or propagation of fires.
