What about other waste?

You can dispose of all general household waste including biodegradable and organic garden waste free of charge such as:

  • Grass cuttings (soil and stones are part of the charging waste scheme)
  • Hedge trimmings, twigs, small branches
  • Plants, flowers, leaves and weeds (please refer to our garden waste page for advice on intrusive weeds)

 If you take these types of waste to any of our sites in a van, pickup or trailer you will require a van permit

Which CRCs accept charging scheme waste?

Do I have to use a CRC for chargeable waste?

No. CRCs are not designed to accept large quantities of this type of waste. For large home or garden renovation projects please consider factoring in the cost of hiring a skip or using a commercial waste contractor to dispose of such waste. Details of local companies who deal with this type of waste can be found by searching online or in local directories. It is important to always check that any contractor you hire to dispose of your waste is a registered waste carrier to avoid your waste being fly-tipped.
