Contaminated Greenwaste

Council conducts inspections of all incoming greenwaste loads to ensure customers are not combining their general waste within the load.

Should a customer be identified as attempting to dispose of a contaminated greenwaste load (greenwaste combined with general waste), they may be charged at a general waste rate for the entire load with possible exclusion from the facility for an extended period.
