Just so that you know what's coming:

Inert waste - Lancashire County Council

Quote:
Under the provisions of the Environmental Protection Act 1990 the council, in its role as waste disposal authority, must make household waste recycling centres available for the deposit of household waste free of charge for persons resident in its area. However, the current recycling centre service also accepts a range of waste materials that do not come under the definition of household waste. These include, for example, soil and rubble, plasterboard, asbestos, tyres and gas bottles, amongst others.
From the 1 June 2015, you will need an inert waste permit to deposit inert waste, free of charge at our recycling centres.
The items below are examples of inert waste that you can deposit in the inert waste or plaster and plasterboard containers at your local recycling centre:
  • Ash
  • Bath
  • Bathroom sink and pedestal
  • Bidet
  • Bricks
  • Ceramics
  • Chimney pots
  • Clay
  • Concrete
  • Concrete fence post
  • Flag stones
  • Floor tiles
  • Glass
  • Hardcore
  • Kitchen sink
  • Lintel
  • Plaster
  • Plasterboard
  • Plate (Flat) glass
  • Roof tiles
  • Rubble
  • Sand
  • Slates
  • Soil (all types)
  • Stones
  • Tarmac
  • Tiles
  • Toilet base
  • Toilet cistern
  • Turf
Your free inert waste permit will allow you to deposit ten bags or equivalent single items of inert waste each calendar year.
  • The maximum dimensions of a bag is 600 x 900mm
  • The maximum dimensions of a sheet of plasterboard is 2400 x 1200mm
  • An equivalent single item could include a toilet, sink or pane of glass
For example if you are refurbishing your bathroom a permit will allow you to deliver the following items free of charge:
  • 2 x bag of bricks
  • 2 x bag of wall tiles
  • 1 x bag of plaster
  • Pedestal (1 x item)
  • Shower screen (1 x item)
  • Sink (1 x item)
  • Toilet (1 x item)
  • Toilet Cistern (1 x item)
Total = 10 bags or equivalent items.
Permits can be obtained online or by telephoning 0300 123 6781. Please note that Inert Waste permits will be posted and printed in May.
Inert Waste permits are valid for a calendar year therefore you do not need to inform the council if you move home. Please note that you will not be able to register your vehicle at your new address until the following year.
Important information
  • Only 1 vehicle can be registered at a household.
  • A vehicle can only be registered for use at 1 household.
  • If you are borrowing a vehicle from a friend it is advisable that you ask them to obtain a permit. If you register your friend's vehicle at your address your friend will not be able to register their own vehicle at their own address. In instances like this you are advised to use your friend's permit to deliver waste. If your friend has used all of the visits on their permit you will have the option to 'Pay-as-you-throw' at the recycling centre.
  • Permits will not be replaced. If you have misplaced your permit you have the option to 'Pay-as-you-throw' at the recycling centre, hire a skip or wait until your next permit is available.
Loose inert waste

For householders using trailers, or for inert waste not presented in bags, the following charging policy shall apply:
  • Trailers up to 1 metre in length - 17.50*
  • Trailers up to 2 metre in length - 35.00*
  • Trailers up to 3 metre in length - 52.50*
Open backed vehicles (i.e. pickups) would be charged as above dependent upon size of carrying area. The use of greedy boards may result in additional charges.
If you have additional inert waste you have the option to 'Pay-as-you-throw' at the recycling centres.
Pay-as-you-throw

If you have additional inert waste or if you do not wish to obtain a permit, you may choose to use the 'pay as you throw' service at the recycling centres.
The charges at the recycling centre are 3.50* per bag or item. Payment will be taken on site by credit or debit card only. Payment by cash or cheque will not be accepted.
If you are unable to pay (because for example you have left your debit/credit card at home) you will be asked to leave the site and to return later with a means of payment. You will not be allowed to dispose of any inert waste unless you can pay. You will of course be allowed to dispose of any household waste free of charge.
If you don't want to pay you will be unable to deliver your inert waste at the recycling centres and will have to use another disposal option such as hiring a skip or taking the waste to a private waste management company.
*Charges will be reviewed annually.
It's expected that the permit will be free - however the skeptics amongst us expect there to be a charge for something we have already paid for.

Re: Changes in waste disposal at the recycling centres.

Well, it seems I am falling foul of this.

I have about 9 x 1/4 bags of waste (makes em easier to carry) because I have just removed the innards of a chimney in a back bedroom.
Also a load of bricks\stones.

But will I be able to take them to the Haslingden recycling centre without one of these?
I know I won't get the damned thing for a week if at all - the text above says they are printed in May.

So dumping is IMO more likely with such a farcical method of being able to dispose of our waste.

Methinks I need to find a skip thats only 1/2 full.
