Why are you charging?

Question:
Why are you charging?
Answer:

It is a statutory duty for the sites to accept household waste for free, this is waste produced in the normal day-to-day occupation of a home. Additional waste such as landscaping or construction work is considered as non-household waste and we do not have to accept this waste

As a result, we will charge for the disposal of some non-household waste which includes soil and rubble, plasterboard and tyres at our recycling centres. The charge will contribute to  overheads and the cost of disposing of the materials.

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 and will ensure that the system is not abused by those seeking to dispose of trade waste for free.
