    This "dumping ground" is a convenient dump for Northcliff, Berario and Fairland residents. It is a division of Pikitup and there are approximately 16 - 20 bins. The man in charge does try to separate the refuse into trees/bushes and wood (they have a wood cutting machine on site to cut up wood that is too large).

    Lately we have a grumpy lady working at the Fairland Dumping Ground but, she certainly seems to have things running smoothly. She doesn't greet you or smile, simply gives you a bin number to dump garden refuse into and points to where the bin is. Then she turns her back on you and sits down on her chair. The premises are kept clean, I never get an overfull bin and I get in and out very quickly. Guess what, I don't mind if the lady doesn't want to smile at me - at least things are working here.

    Hubby has been going to this dump for years with regards to dumping of garden refuse, rubble, plastics, glass. Staff are generally accommodating if you are dumping something they want they jump to help you on other occasions one could say they are on a go slow. Of late found they want you to give them something seems you need a bribe to be able to dump your garbage!!!

    The dumping site is in a good spot and is convenient for the area but as previously mentioned in other reviews, the staff are full of nonsense. They are out to make a few bucks where they can and are not at all interested in doing their jobs. I know there are a number of unemployed, homeless people who sleep nearby who would probably jump at the opportunity to have employment so the staff should really get their act together.

    I visit the site once a week to dispose of our garden refuse. I find the staff most uncooperative and, unless you offer them money, they will often tell you the bins are full. They have become used to my shouting when I know they are lying so have stopped trying their luck. I find the dumping bins very convenient as it is within five minutes from my home.

    The Fairland dumping ground is in a very convenient spot for Northcliff, Fairland and Berario residents. Dumping on weekends is very annoying because there are people scratching to see what you are dumping but offer no assistance unless you give them cigarettes, money or something for free. If you dont give them something they tell you the bins are full and wont let you in to the premises!!

    Almost an institution in Fairland, this PIKITUP 'waste depot' accepts garden waste, used motor oil, plastics, glass, and limited building rubble. I have used the facility on numerous occasions, for garden, rubble, plastics, glass, as well as old motor oil. Generally pleasant and accommodating, and making a valiant effort at recycling as much as possible. Where would we be if we could not 'dump'? Thank you !
