Dsposal allows everybody to find the right place for their waste. One part of that is knowing the place your rubbish will end up. That is why Dsposal places all the waste sites on the map so that anyone can see where the site is located.
In this article, you'll learn what you need to do to make sure the pin on the map is located at your actual site location.
Before You Start
Here are some things to know before you begin this task of moving your pin:
- While you can use Dsposal for free you have to register for an account to access the dashboard.
- To access the right area on the dashboard to move the pin you will need to have already claimed a waste site profile.
Locate your current pin location
The first step is to locate your current pin location and confirm that it is in the incorrect place. Head to the Dsposal homepage, enter in your waste site name and your location and search.
Locate your waste site profile tile and click the tile (be careful not to click on the links). This will centre the map.
If it is correct then there is no need to carry on. If the pin is not in the right place, then move onto the next step.
Find the correct location
As the Environment Agency Public Register uses Eastings and Northings then Dsposal needs to do the same.
To locate the correct Eastings and Northings we use a website called UK Grid Reference Finder.
Follow the link, enter the postcode of your site into the input box labelled Post Code and click “Go”.
Right click on the location that your site is at and a box will appear with the X (Eastings) and Y (Northings).
Update your site profile with the correct location
To change these Eastings and Northings head to your Dashboard. Choose "Sites" from the menu and click “Edit Site” on the waste site profile you wish to change the location. Scroll down to the “Regions” section and find the Eastings and Northings boxes.
Copy the information from UK Grid Reference Finder.
Check the pin was updated
The final step is to check that your pin moved location. Head to the Dsposal homepage, enter in your waste site name and your location and search for the information.
Locate your waste site profile and click the tile (be careful not to click on the links). This will centre the map.
The pin will have moved to the new location.
