Trade waste includes anything not from a household, whether or not for profit.

Whilst it is free to dispose of household waste, any waste that is not from your house or has been produced through the activities of a business will be subject to the following charges:

 Up to 180 kg             - £40
 Every additional 50kg - £5 - 10 (depending on total weight)
