Nick G. I also clear up a lot of cans and litter myself, just goes to show how much there is. The ones causing the most problems have expensive motorbikes and camping equipment,

I used to get unwanted/scam calls about 3 times a day despite being on TPS - scammers are illegal callers and will be unaffected by TPS as they are based abroad; the same applies to the worst of the sales calls. My solution - get rid of my landline (2 ... [ more ]

Just been to the tip with 2 bags of soil and old turf had to pay £2 per     bag disgusting used to be 2 bags per day free.  Another council rip off   what are they doing with all this money

I wonder if the charge is aimed at companies - building firms etc who would regularly want to dispose of soil.   As for the general public, surely you can make other arrangements for your unwanted soil or if not then pay the surcharge.
