Waste Disposal Costs On The Rise

… but everything isn’t gloom and doom

Although the UK officially left the EU in 2020, it was agreed that the EU’s goal of diverting 50% of waste from landfill for the UK by 2020 would continue to be in effect.

The targets were set in 2007 when landfill expenses were averaging £35.00 per tonne.

The average cost of a landfill over a ten-year period increased by a startling 270% to £130.00 per tonne. More landfill price hikes will be applicable for 2024 and 2025 because the current goal is only 45% diversion.

The good news is at Maxi Skips we recycle over 90% of all the waste we receive. This means less than 10% of our waste ends up in land fill. This enables us to keep our operating costs as low as possible which in turn allows us to keep our skip hires prices low for our customers.
