2019 customer survey underway
Our annual customer survey has started at our Household Recycling Centres. We'd like to hear from as many people as possible, so take 5 minutes and let us know what you think.
Disposing of asbestos, plasterboard, and garden chemicals
From 1 April 2019, residents will have to pay to dispose of plasterboard and asbestos.
You will need to apply for a waste permit to dispose of asbestos at a Household Recycling Centre. There will be a charge and the maximum amount accepted is three normal sized bin-liner bags (or four sheets of approx 2m by 1m).
Conditions of disposal:
- only bonded asbestos accepted
- all wood, glass, plastic and metal must have been removed before disposal
- asbestos must be double bagged and wrapped
- speak to a site attendant before disposal to assess the load and pay for disposal
If you have asbestos to dispose of, and don't wish to do this yourself, we recommend using a private asbestos removal contractor.
We can accept up to 5 litres of garden chemicals, paraffin or petrol/diesel. Please ensure they are still in the original containers which are not leaking. Petrol and diesel should be in a petrol or jerry can.
From 1st April 2019, there will be a charge for disposing of plasterboard. All plasterboard brought to site should have tiles, wood and other materials removed before disposal.
