NCC: Charges to dispose of DIY waste from 1st April 2018

DIY waste

Service update: from 1 April 2018 there will be a charge for the disposal of all DIY type construction and demolition waste. There will no longer be a free 80 litre or one item concession.

Up until 1 April you can continue to dispose of one item or the equivalent of one 80lt sack per household per week for free.

DIY waste is classed as construction and demolition waste, not household waste, and whilst we’ve previously accepted small amounts for free, we can no longer do this.  Our services need to reduce their costs. We prefer to save money by changing our policies rather than by reducing opening hours or closing a recycling centre. Removing the free DIY concession will help us to do this.

DIY waste can be disposed of through our ‘Pay as you throw’ service.  Other options include hiring a skip or employing a licenced waste carrier. Please make sure to factor in the cost of disposing of DIY waste when planning your latest DIY project.

For more information about the change in our policy read our press release.

Prices per 80 litre sack or single item

  • Unsorted/non-recyclable DIY waste – £5
  • Flat glass – £5 (classed as non-recyclable at Mile Cross Recycling Centre)
  • Rubble – £3
  • Plasterboard – £9 (£15 at Mile Cross)
  • Timber – £3
  • Scrap metal – no charge

Moped rental

Kickstart Mopeds offers reduced hire of mopeds to assist people in getting to work or to college.
