Residents are reminded that ‘your waste, is your responsibility’ meaning you must ensure all your household rubbish is disposed of properly and legally. Failure to do so could land you with £400 fixed penalty notice.
Ensure anyone you use to remove waste from your property has a valid Waste Carrier’s Licence and is authorised to do so. Use the waste carrier quick check tool by visiting the Environment Agency’s website or head to the Right Waste Right Place website to help you check.
Residents can also make use of Wokingham Borough Council’s large unwanted items service, which collects a wide range of goods from carpets to washing machines. You can dispose of up to five large items for a charge of £56 using this service. Find out more by visiting our website.
In addition, waste and recycling can also be disposed of at our recycling centres, including Longshot Lane, Bracknell, or Smallmead, Reading. Visit the re3website for more details.
