Why has the council started to charge?

Due to reductions in central government funding we have less to spend on services for the public. Like many other councils we are no longer able to provide wheeled bins free of charge. The charge covers supply and administration costs.

Under Section 46 of the Environmental Protection Act (EPA) 1990 we have a duty to collect waste from households and arrange for its disposal. The Act also states we can can specify the type and size of the container and require you to pay for it.
