UPDATE: All recycling sites have reverted to their usual summer schedules and are taking all materials, including those with charges. Restrictions remain to ensure social distancing and safety. Charges, as detailed below, apply to deposit hardcore, soil, tyres and gas bottles, because they are not classed as household waste (according to the Controlled Waste Regulations), at all of our sites. Signs at recycling centres and community recycling sites make it clear that there are charges for non-household materials. For the prices, see the details below or ask any member of staff if your items are liable to be charged for and how much. Entry to recycling centres is free, and depositing household waste is free. Payment accepted on Visa and MasterCard credit and debit cards, Visa Electron and Diners Club, including contactless cards.
