Why are there charges?

Question:
Why are there charges?
Answer:

It’s important that, in times of unprecedented budget pressures, we make the best possible use of the money we have to support the most vulnerable people in society and meet our statutory responsibilities. We have a statutory duty to accept household waste, some waste generated from some non-household waste  or garden landscaping work is legally regarded as non-household waste which we do not have a duty to accept.

As a result charging for certain non-household waste was introduced on 1 November 2016. Charges include soil and rubble, plasterboard and tyres. The charge will contribute to the cost of disposing of the materials and we will not make a profit as a result.

Charging will ensure that we can continue to offer disposal facilities for these materials to residents, who would otherwise find them difficult to get rid of. We will ensure that the system is not abused by those seeking to dispose of trade waste for free.
