Emergency Site Keys
Health and Safety
The committee would encourages all plot holders to have at least 2 keys and that one key is given to the person that the plot holder would contact should they require assistance. Obviously, this person would need to know the layout of the site and the location of the plot.
You can pick up an additional key from the Treasurer; David Noddings, 14 Breck Road, Darlington, DL3 8NH. Please phone him on 01325 462658 to arrange a collection time. The deposit for this key is the standard £15.
Bonfires are currently permited but do remember to be mindful of adjoining plot holders and our neighbours when planning a fire. Please do not set a fire if it is too windy and make sure the wind
will not blow the smoke towards the nearest houses.
Always ensure the fire is extinguished before leave your plot.

HGA - Waste Disposal
Leave any metal in the collection bay in the main car park.
We will get this collected by a scrap dealer.
We usually get some cash for it to add to our funds.
Once emptied, the metal bay will be closed down until October.
The big bonfire is not available this year. Do NOT add anything to it.
Waste wood can be taken to the council tip or burnt on your plot - please be considerate.
DO NOT burn - plastic, contiboard, roofing felt, tyres, asbestos, oil, paint, plasterboard, carpets as it leaves the chemical residue in the soil.
Should be composted on your own plot.
Small stuff - Take it home.
Big panes - Take it home or to the Household Waste Recycling Centre (Tip) @Mewburn Road, DL3 0RY.
Take it home
The only option is to take any other waste to the council tip yourselves.
Do not bring old carpets onto the site to use as ground cover or on compost bins.
They rot and release toxins into the soil.
Remove them and replace them with a breathable plastic weed suppressant.
