Hello. I'm having a clear out at my place and have loaded up an 8 foot trailer with rubbish. II don't think they'll take it as household waste as it looks much more like builders rubbish and I'll be driving a van. Has anyone any idea where I can take it? I'm in Barcombe (ive tried ESSC and LDC web sites but no joy).

Maybe try Light Bros?

My builders ran into this problem: I'm fairly certain that in the end they had to take their waste to the dump at Seaford which has facilities for handling stuff like plasterboard and rubble. It might be worth giving them a call and asking.

Er, SQ, a reputable builder should not have any trouble disposing of waste. They have a legal duty to do so and should be aware of the law.

Indeed Country Boy, how on earth is a person who makes his living as a builder surprised that getting rid of the rubbish they create may be an issue
Hire a skip or registered waste remover. Neither if these are free or cheap so you can blame the previous government who imposed stringent landfill taxes on traders who deal in waste
And guess what happens? They pass them on to you

Indeed, thanks so much for your advice. Wouldn't it be nice if you could be civil?
It was a small amount of waste; certainly nothing that would fill a skip. And he paid to dispose of it in Seaford: the point is that you don't have to go to a private contractor because there are council-run alternatives who can accept grades of waste which the local skip cannot.

If you have a white van just dump your rubbish in a car park . or a nice playing field . its no problem for some to do that .

Thanks for the replies. Driving to Hailsham or Seaford seems a tad extreme (and not terribly green!). Hiring a skip is very expensive, and I don't have enough to fill it. Bearing in mind the lack of options maybe I'll attempt the household waste centre at Lewes and argue the toss with them there.

Pretty sure you need a license to dump commercial rubbish at the tip in lewes. However, your rubbish is from your home and you can hopefully prove it. Why don't you pop down to he tip and have a word with the staff down there.

A couple of years ago when I had a lot of rubbish to move and some of it was big, so had to go in a van, I rang the council and was told that if I gave them the make reg no of the van, and the day I would be doing it, I could take it to the local tip.
I have a vague recollection that I had to produce something with my name and address when at the tip, too.

Not willing to drive for miles with a large trailer to pay to dump the rubbish I looked at the requirements for dumping it at Lewes household rubbish tip. As long are you have a car based van under six and a half foot in height and a single axle trailer of less than 6 foot they'll take any rubbish. I transferred all the rubbish from the 8ft trailer into the van and a smaller trailer and they took it, even the plastic bath and 1 ton builders bags. So all good.

you cannot dump commercial rubbish, you have to have an enviroment license to move it and it has to be disposed of in a licensed receiving place, household tips are for household rubbish, get a chit from LDC to transport it to the tip. of course you could do what most savvy builders do hire a skip.
