Like most councils, we have a small charge for some items of building and construction waste (plus tyres). The vast majority of what you can bring to a site is free.
Your volume will be assessed on site and payment must be by card.
Please note, the first 25 litre bag or single item is currently free, to help make the visits to sites safe and to reduce contact. This does not include plasterboard and gypsum related products.
Types of chargeable waste
Rubble, hardcore and soil
- slates and roof tiles
- sand, gravel, pebbles and stones
