Why are we introducing charging?
We are aware that our Recycling Centres are highly valued by residents, however like many local authorities; we have to make difficult financial decisions due to significant cuts from central government. We are required by law to provide a Household Waste and Recycling Centre service and ours is one of the most efficient in the country. We do not, however, have to provide a disposal service for rubble and plasterboard so, like with many other councils we have decided to charge a small amount for this service to help fund our front line services.
Please be aware that the telephone line is not always manned. We would recommend checking the information on this page prior to making contact.
