Charges to dispose of soil, hardcore etc

I notice a sign at the Ham Lane tip (sorry, Household Waste Recycling Site) to the effect that you'll be charged from 1st October for disposing of certain items. The sign doesn't give the charges (that would be a bit too user-friendly) so I dug into the ESCC website for you. They are: 4 per bag of soil or hardcore; 4 per bag or sheet of plasterboard; 6 per bag or sheet of bonded asbestos; and 2 per tyre. And the site will be open shorter hours: 9am-4pm every day, all year round. opening. Maximum bag size 55cm x 85cm (standard rubble sack); maximum sheet size 240cm x 120cm.
So if you've got a garden project that involves losing some soil, chalk or rubble, now would be a good time to get digging....

It's good to see the council tax increase being put to good use.

Brighton tip is not run by ESCC and will not be charging.

Most of the stuff you've listed they either didn't use to take or took a very limited amount. Surely this is more aimed at businesses then individuals

can be used in the garden - if big enough - just build a mound with the hardcore then cover with soil. It worked for me and the plants grow well

Tom - it's not a business tip, so no it's all aimed at residents.
Old news anyway - it was in the free Argus last week.

Good to see the council increasing the community charge and then doing this. Asbestos and plasterboard are covered by regulations as they are dangerous. This is penny wise and pound foolish, the fly tipping bill is around 250,000 at present watch it double +++. Idiotic policy.
