   Recycling centre charges removed in Derbyshire    May 12, 2017

Charges were introduced on Monday 3 April 2017 to help pay Derbyshire's £37.2m annual waste bill.

Residents were required to pay £3 per standard rubble sack to take soil, bricks, rubble and ceramics such as bathroom furniture and tiles to the centres.

The fees were withdrawn from Saturday, 6 May 2017 following the county elections and a change of administration on Friday, 5 May 2017.

The charges were removed in response to a Government announcement about current guidance for councils which is to be reviewed to make sure it reflects changes in the law and to make clear what can and cannot be charged for at recycling centres − including DIY waste.

The previous policy of accepting a maximum of 50kgs − the equivalent of two 25kg sacks − of building and demolition waste per visit was reinstated.
