CHARGES AT RECYCLING CENTRES
Charges for people taking building and demolition waste to Derbyshire County Council’s household waste recycling centres will start on Monday 3 April 2017. Government cuts mean our budget will be a third lower in 2018 than in 2010 and we need to find new ways of helping to pay Derbyshire’s £37.2m waste bill each year. The types of waste that will incur the new charges are concrete, mortar, rubble, hardcore and ceramics. The charge will be £3 per standard rubble sack and payment will be by card machine only to reduce security risks.
Full details of what items will be chargeable can be found on the attached leaflet
