Book your trip to the tip

RESIDENTS could soon have to book a visit to one of South Gloucestershire Council’s Sort It recycling centres.

The council says a new law limits how much DIY waste, such as rubble and plasterboard, people can bring to recycling centres without paying. This means the council has to start recording and limiting how much is disposed of, and it believes a booking system is the best way to do this.

People are being asked to have their say in the consultation section of the council’s website, which has more details on how the scheme would work.
