charging for the disposal of non-household waste materials (soil, rubble, hardcore and plasterboard) at KCC Household Waste Recycling Centres’

Following the public consultation undertaken last year, I can confirm the Kent County Council Cabinet Member for Planning, Highways, Transport and Waste, has now endorsed the recommendation for the ‘charging for the disposal of non-household waste materials (soil, rubble, hardcore and plasterboard) at KCC Household Waste Recycling Centres’ proposal. All details relating to the Decision can be found here.

For your information and to share with residents, as appropriate, the charging policy starts on Monday 3 June 2019 at all 18 Kent Household Waste Recycling Centres, with details as follows:

Soil, Rubble & Hardcore:

£4 per bag*/item.

Limited to 5 bags/items per day

Plasterboard:

£6 per bag*/sheet.

*Any bag up to the size of a standard black sack.

Payment will be by card only and there will be a dedicated member of staff to assist customers when they arrive at site with chargeable waste items.

Information can be found in our ‘Operating Policy’ document online at www.kent.gov.uk/recycling and FAQs will also shortly be made available online.

We are also arranging for 2 posters to be sent to you via KALC w/c 20th May, which we would be very grateful if you could display, to provide awareness to local residents please.

If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards
