What hours is Wastenott open?
4 days a week from Wednesday to Saturday
10am to 4.30pm.
How does it work?
Just bring your containers in and firstly weigh your empty container with the lid on. Mark the weight with a pen.
Then just fill them up with what you want.
When you are ready, take your product to the till .
A staff member will then take off the weight of the container, weigh it and you will see the price of your product on the till.
What if I don't have containers?
We will have plenty of containers - jars, bottles and paper bags, you can buy. So don't worry if you haven't got them with you when you come in.
Is there anything I need to be careful about?
It is your responsibility to make sure your containers are clean and dry, so make sure they are spotless and well dried before putting lids back on. Also don't use any food containers for non food items e.g. juice bottle for washing up liquid, that is to avoid any nasty accidents.
Label up what is in each container. Pens will be there to help
