If you’re planning any DIY or building work at home, make sure you’re aware that from 1 September 2016 there will be new charges for some non-household waste at the nine community recycling centres which accept it.
Charges will apply for waste from construction, alterations or repair of your home or garden, such as plasterboard, breeze blocks, bricks, rubble and soil. A charge will also apply for tyres from cars and motorbikes. You can only pay by credit or debit card.
The introduction of charges is being made as increased demand for essential services, coupled with reduced government funding, means Surrey County Council needs to reduce its spending in other areas, including its CRCs.
A full list of the types of waste that will be charged for, the costs and your free allowance is available at surreycc.gov.uk/recycling.
