How do we Collect and Charge
Collection of both clean and dirty waste is by six-wheeler, high-sided vehicles which are self-loading by means of a grab at the rear of the vehicle. The grab has a weigh-cell attached for weighing the material on to the lorry as the farmers are charged by the tonne for collection of the waste. This method has been used since 1999 and has proved successful as the customer can see the weight being loaded, as each grab-full is weighed prior to loading on to the lorry. If a farmer has a backlog of material, he/she can decide how much to have taken away at each collection. This is very important, as the farmer can not pass this cost on during sale of produce from the farm - unlike any other business when the costs are added to the market product.
