Disposal of soil, rubble and plasterboard

Find the cost and details about taking soil, hardcore and rubble or plasterboard to a Suffolk Recycling Centre.

You can take household waste from your own home to a Suffolk Recycling Centre free of charge. Charges apply to any waste arisen as a result of business or trade activity.

Hardcore, rubble, soil and plasterboard are not classified as household waste so you will need to pay a charge. 

You can only pay by card, not cash. Rates determined by site staff are non-negotiable.
