Managing waste wisely

General Household Waste

General Household Waste is any solid waste that isn’t suitable or doesn’t fit in your kerbside recycling or landfill bin, including sand and rubble. It does not include liquid waste*.

For a fee, the WMRC accepts solid waste that can fit in a car or boot (seats up) or a small trailer(<1.8m x 1.2m). The fee charged will depend on the type and weight of waste being disposed of. This waste is subject to further processing so that recoverable items don’t go to landfill. Depending on where you live, you may be entitled to a mixed waste pass for waste disposal at the WMRC. Check with your local Council to see if you qualify.

*Please note: Liquid waste or hazardous waste cannot be accepted as General Household Waste, but domestic quantities of certain items can be dropped off for free. See our Household Hazardous Waste page for further information.
