Why do we charge for these types of waste?

The council does not have a statutory duty to dispose of these types of waste for free and most UK local authorities are now applying charges. Therefore, we would prefer to provide a convenient service for members of the public for a charge, rather than not offering this service at all. 

How do I pay?

Please ensure payment is made at one of our Customer Hub locations either at the St Mary's Library or the Carn Gwaval Wellbeing Centre beofre you visit the site to deposit material. The waste & recycling operatives at Porthmellon will require proof of payment upon arrival.
