From April 1st 2011, Devon Council County will start
charging for non-household waste that is taken to Recycling Centres. The minimum
charge will be £2 per bag. Another present from Conservative Controlled Devon
County Council after areas rejected Parking Meter Tax. We now have Recycling
This has now been clarified - Charges will be levied on soil and rubble (including bricks, blocks, tiles, paving slabs, concrete posts, sanitary ware etc), plasterboard (including plaster and gypsum related products), bonded asbestos and tyres
brought to any Recycling Centres in Devon. All other household waste,
including garden waste, recyclables and general waste will still be
accepted free of charge.
All money collected at civic amenity sites will go directly to the contractor which runs them.
The Site Manager’s decision is final on the actual charge to be made.
So who will be monitoring what they decide to charge?
