Pay By Weight - Commencing 1st July 2016

Right across the country waste contractors use a variety of different methods to charge for their services. To create a level playing field and to encourage positive environmental behaviour changes are coming into force by July 2016 which will see all householders charged on a Pay By Weight basis for their waste collection service.

The advantage of pay by weight is that it gives you more control over your waste bills.   The less your bin weighs, the less you pay, so there is a great incentive to prevent and recycle waste.

So from 1st July 2016 each household will pay an annual service charge for collection and after that their waste Contractor will weigh the bins each time they are collected and apply a charge based on the weight of the bin.
