What Will I Be Charged For and How Much Will It Cost?

The costs for routine disposals are in general recovered centrally, and so these costs are not passed on to client departments; the services are free of charge at point of use.  Charges are levied to cover the costs associated with the provision of non-routine services, typically where:

  • The waste from one department may not arise in another department.  By example, one department my produce waste which needs to go into a skip whereas another may not and so waste which goes into a skip is chargeable.

  • Additional resources are required to dispose of a type of waste.  An example of this would be where the quantity of a particular type of waste is so great as to require an additional resource to be brought in to assist with its disposal.

  • Failure to comply with the guidance contained in these pages gives rise to waste arisings which require additional resources to be expended in clearing the wastes.

    Confidential Wastes

    • Confidential papers: routine disposals are free of charge. Larger quantities are subject to payment.
    • Computer media (floppy discs, CDs, DVDs etc) and hard drives requiring confidential destruction: please contact the Customer Services Centre in order that a price can be given.
