Charges for non-household waste are changing at OCC recycling centres from Sunday 1 October 2017.
You will still be able to dispose of all household waste free of charge at any of the county’s Household Waste Recycling Centres (HWRCs).
How is the new scheme different from the current 1,2,3 for free scheme?
The existing DIY 1,2,3 for free scheme is being replaced by a small fixed fee per item, as shown in the table below. Our DIY 1,2,3 for free scheme’s been in place for 15 years and allowed residents to deposit up to three items for free, before being charged a small fee of £1 for each additional item.
