Bricks, Soil & Rubble
It is not a statutory duty for the sites to take waste that isn’t produced in the normal day-to-day occupation of a home. Certain waste from household maintenance and improvement or garden work is not legally regarded as normal household rubbish and a charge or disposal limit can be made.
How much will it cost?
The charges will be based upon the quantity of material deposited. Payment for bags* will be whole or multiple of bags.
£3 per bag or unit (e.g. a toilet)
* Charges are based on standard rubble bags which are approximately 76cm x 96 cm. They are available from DIY stores or you can buy them from the recycling centre for 10p. Waste can be presented loose or in different sized bags and charges will be estimated by staff.
Please note: these charges only apply to householders. They do not apply to trade waste which has a separate scheme.
How do I pay?
Either by credit or debit card.
Please note: No cash or cheques will be accepted.

For large jobs such as building an extension, renovating a house or demolishing a wall will mean you have to hire a skip and pay for the removal/disposal of the material.
