Gloucestershire County Council announce new recycling rule

Gloucestershire County Council have announced that this change will come into immediate effect on Saturday, April 1.

Local garages and dealers will still accept tyres for a small fee.

The council said Household Recycling Centres cannot accept business waste and that business owners have a legal duty to manage their waste responsibly.

It has been estimated that this recycling change will save the council £50,000 a year because it will prevent businesses tyre waste from being subsidised by the council and the tax payer.

Cllr David Gray, cabinet member for environment and planning, said: “This change to stop accepting tyres at our Household Recycling Centres will help the council save tax payers’ money that can be spent in better ways for our residents.”
