Trade Waste Recycling centre opens to the public

27 July 2018

Businesses and traders will now be able to dispose of their waste at a new low cost venue in Chester.

A new Trade Waste Recycling and Disposal Centre will be opening at the former Household Waste Recycling Centre on Bumpers Lane in the city on 30 July 2018.

It offers a ‘pay as you go’ service which is ideal for small to medium size businesses and traders who are able to transport the waste themselves. There is no minimum amount of waste required to use the site.

Traders will be charged by the type of material they are disposing of and its associated weight and must hold a valid waste carriers licence which needs to be shown on every visit.

The cost of disposing of waste up to 0.15 tonne is £40 for mixed trade waste, £25 for garden waste, £36 for plasterboard and £22 for rubble. The price rises for heavier waste disposal. 

Councillor Karen Shore, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: “This facility offers businesses the opportunity to dispose of their waste responsibly and legally. Traders can reassure clients that they are disposing of their waste in the correct manner, and at a low cost. 

“By providing our traders and businesses with this important disposal centre, Cheshire West and Chester Council is once again demonstrating that we are a forward-looking Council which thinks creatively using the resources available and acts innovatively to serve the people of Cheshire West. 

“Residents will also be able to purchase re-useable bargains at the reuse shop. The reuse shop will sell items that have been left by the public such as bric-a-brac, small electrical items and furniture, which have been safety tested. ”  The centre will be open from Monday 30 July. It will be open Monday to Friday 8am to 4pm, Saturday 8am to noon, and closed on Sundays.
