Litter rejected as 'wrong type of waste'

Volunteers gave up their free time and dodged snow showers to collect rubbish blighting part of Woodbridge.
But when they tried to dispose of the litter at a Suffolk County Council site they were told it was the “wrong type of waste”.

Mark Deer, the council's waste services manager, said: “Unfortunately the site can not accept that type of waste.

Waste is categorized - we cannot take in everything and if we are caught accepting waste not permitted under our license we could be prosecuted.”
