More about the services


Under the new contract, recycling prices are 40% cheaper than those for residual waste. This means that real savings can be achieved for those who recycle. Data supplied by the current contractors indicates that only 25-30% of waste is being recycled, but up to 90% of waste is recyclable – which means there is potential for huge cost savings.

Office Grade White Paper

SITA offer a free-of-charge collection for office grade white paper across the County. A separate bin will be provided by SITA. Further details are available on request from Julie Price at County Supplies – e-mail:

Hazardous Waste

The Grundon Haz-Box service caters for small volume but regular producers of hazardous waste. You will be supplied with a 55 litre lidded plastic box for the on-site storage of your waste, the contents are then collected upon an agreed schedule. Segregation of the waste is made on-site, much of which can be recycled, and collections can be arranged fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, 6-monthly or annually.

Charges are per box, per collection with discounts for additional boxes and collections. Additional waste that cannot fit into a box can be removed for an additional cost. Prices and further details are available on request from Julie Price at County Supplies.
