The Board reserves the right to charge the General Public if they are doing large renovation jobs on their property.
This includes major gardening jobs.
If a Property is bought for investment purposes, i.e. it is going to be rented out to a third party then waste from building renovation is chargeable at commercial rates or if the property is or will be used for business purposes again the waste is chargeable at commercial rates.
Section 69 of the Public Health Act 1990 allows Local Authorities to provide places where Commercial and Domestic Waste can be deposited on payment of charges(if any) they think fit.
The Government Policy on waste is “Polluter Pays.” In addition, the person producing the waste has an obligation to make sure waste is disposed of in an appropriate manner.
If you are going to produce over a tonne of waste, the Board recommends you consider getting a skip there are plenty of Local Companies offering this service
However, they are aware not everyone can have a skip near their property.
If you wish to bring the rubbish to the Site and are bringing in small amounts once or twice a week in a car that is acceptable (200kg total)
If you hope to drop off more than that and it involves several trips a day in a car or you have use of a van or large trailer a charge may apply
