Directions from staff must be followed.

2. Stop at the entry
All entry and exit is by weighbridge. Please follow traffic lights, so only one vehicle is on the weighbridge at any time. Please announce your waste type to the weighbridge operator. Staff will direct you to the correct location for your waste types. On the site your load will be assessed by a centre attendant. You may be asked to uncover loads for inspection purposes. 

3. Obey road safety requirements
All roads at Kimbriki are classed as public roads and as such have strict safety requirements including:

  • Speed limit of 20 km per hour
  • No person is permitted to ride in the tray of utes, trailers or trucks.
  • Seatbelts must be worn when driving on the site.

As with any public road, fines may apply when road rules are disregarded.

4. No scavenging
Scavenging of waste is a significant safety issue. The public are not permitted to salvage material from the site.

5. Children must remain in vehicles
Kimbriki is a working site and children must remain in vehicles at all times, except while visiting the Eco House and Garden.

6. Manual handling
All loads must be unloaded by the customer. Ensure you load your vehicle to allow for safe unloading of waste.

7. Cover your load
It is illegal and unsafe to have an insecure load, projecting load or have material escape on the road. Fines apply for non-compliance.

8. Wear appropriate footwear and clothing
Due to the nature of activity on site it is highly recommended that you wear appropriate footwear and clothing.
