NCC: charges to dispose of DIY waste from 1st April 2018

DIY waste

Service update: from 1 April 2018 there will be a charge for the disposal of all DIY type construction and demolition waste. There will no longer be a free 80 litre or one item concession.

Up until 1 April you can continue to dispose of one item or the equivalent of one 80lt sack per household per week for free.

DIY waste is classed as construction and demolition waste, not household waste, and whilst we’ve previously accepted small amounts for free, we can no longer do this.  Our services need to reduce their costs. We prefer to save money by changing our policies rather than by reducing opening hours or closing a recycling centre. Removing the free DIY concession will help us to do this.

DIY waste can be disposed of through our ‘Pay as you throw’ service.  Other options include hiring a skip or employing a licenced waste carrier. Please make sure to factor in the cost of disposing of DIY waste when planning your latest DIY project.

For more information about the change in our policy read our press release.

Prices per 80 litre sack or single item

  • Unsorted/non-recyclable DIY waste – £5
  • Flat glass – £5 (classed as non-recyclable at Mile Cross Recycling Centre)
  • Rubble – £3
  • Plasterboard – £9 (£15 at Mile Cross)
  • Timber – £3
  • Scrap metal – no charge

Acle Allotments

Acle Allotment Association

There are currently 40 plots of varying size on the Boat Dyke Lane allotment site with 42 active members involved in their cultivation. The allotment site was initially established under local (Parish) council control and was later extended to its current size. Since 2002 it has been operated by the Acle Allotment Association (AAA).

 The association holds two annual events, the first being our BBQ for members and family which is usually scheduled for mid-July. This is followed closely by our Open Day, when we open up the allotment site to visitors. In addition to affording visitors the opportunity to view the allotment site and individual plots, visitors can sit back and enjoy refreshments, take part in the raffle and purchase cakes/produce from our allotment stalls. This is our main income generator so we look forward to greeting all those who can make it on the day; usually in mid-August so look out for posters advertising the event.

 We produce a member’s newsletter, this is published at regular intervals throughout the year and helps keep members in touch with association activities and events. We have recently launched our own website https://gwilym013.wixsite.com/acleallotments which is open to all visitors.

 If you would like to find out more about the allotments or the workings of the association then please do not hesitate to contact either Robin Cushing (our Chairman) on 01493 750277 or Gwilym Foulkes (our Secretary) on 01493 751947.
