Charges and payments

The prices for our trade waste collection and disposal services for 2022/23 are for the full year from 1 April 2022 to 31 March 2023 - customers joining partway through the year will be charged pro-rata.

VAT is not applied to local authority waste collection services so all prices shown for the collection service do not include VAT. VAT is however still applicable on charges at our disposal operations such as our Recycling Centres and Transfer Station.
