Webmaster General News, Utilities, Waste & Recycling

From 1 September 2016 there will be a charge for some non-household waste at the nine Community Recycling Centres that accept this type of waste. This will include waste from the construction, alteration or repair of home and garden such as plasterboard, bricks, rubble, soil and stones. It will also include tyres from cars, motorcycles and all other motorised vehicles.

A free daily allowance of charging scheme waste from the construction, alteration or repair of your home and garden will be accepted, but will be limited to one bag OR one item OR one sheet of plasterboard per customer per day. There will be no free tyre allowance however bicycle tyres will be accepted free of charge.

The charges do not apply to general household waste and green waste such as grass cuttings, hedge trimmings, plants, flowers, leaves and weeds (restrictions apply to invasive weeds such as Japanese Knotweed)
