North Yorkshire County Council provides the civic amenity sites, known as Household Waste Recycling Centres, which may be used by local residents (usually free of charge) and businesses (usually charged). The sites provide facilities for the collection and recycling of all household and garden waste, other than anything which may be considered as hazardous and requiring special treatment. They may also be known as the tip, dump, civic amenity site, household waste site.
Residents are charged for the disposal of hardcore, rubble and plasterboard delivered to household waste recycling centres in North Yorkshire. Waste created from improvements, repairs and alterations to a home or domestic property is not household waste and there is no legal duty to accept it.
Most of this type of waste is hardcore and rubble, including breeze blocks, bricks, ceramics (e.g. sinks and toilets), concrete, flag stones, gravel, hardcore, pottery, rubble, sand, slates, soil, stones, tarmac, tiles, window glass or plasterboard. The list of charges is available on the County Council's website.
The restrictions on the amount of hardcore and rubble that can be brought onto site have been removed.
Household waste and recyclable items are not affected and will not be charged.
