A total of 75% of local authorities do not think councils should accept household DIY wastes for free disposal at household waste recycling centres (HWRCs), a survey run by LARAC shows.
Councils Support Waste Charge
Three quarters of local councils believe they should be charging for domestic DIY wastes at household waste recycling centres (HWRCs).
Following proposals earlier in the year to stop charges for DIY waste at HWRCs as an effort to crack down on people fly-tipping, authorities have indicated that the charges of covering any lost income will mean that other council service budgets will be cut.
Some of the opposition to the plans stated that the proposals could cause the closure of some HWRC sites to cover the increased costs.
Some of the respondents came out and suggested that these measures could potentiality see the removal of non-statutory waste streams or the reduction of containers for household waste so it could make room for containers for DIY waste at the sites.
