No more free visits to the "tip"

From the 1st of January, a limit will be introduced for how many times you can go to the recycling centre and leave waste free of charge. The decision was made by the Municipal Council.
Kjell Mattson thinks it’s silly to set a limit on the number of visits. "If they want people to come here, otherwise they will throw it in the bushes”, he says.

From the 1st of January, you can visit the tip a maximum of 24 times a year if you own a house. If you own a holiday home or are a tenant, it’s a maximum of 12 times a year. After that, you have to pay 300 crowns every time you want to leave household waste at the recycling centre.

There is a small number that abuses the system and others pay for it

– We’re not trying to go after the majority of people, but there is a small number that abuses the system and others pay for it, says Johan Karlsvärd, CEO of Renhållningen Kristianstad.

Susanne Stjernholm says: “I think people will need to collect it so that it’s only twice a month. But I don’t like fines.

We have a problem with waste that is dumped in the municipality every day, all year round

Kristianstad Municipal Council has now made a decision about waste tax. It will be increased by between 40 and 70 crowns per year. But that which caused a debate was the limit for the number of times you can visit recycling centres.

– We have a problem with waste that is dumped in the municipality every day, all year round, said Ulf Persson (C).

Ingmar Svensson believes that there will be more litter in different places when the limit for the maximum number of visits is introduced

– All of the recycling stations are littered. In Helsingborg, they’ve solved the problem by receiving everything at their facilities. We could do the same here; then there won’t be a problem.

Ulf Persson's request to refer waste back was rejected. As a result, the Municipal Council decided to introduce the change.

An analysis from Renhållningen Kristianstad shows that 90 per cent of all visitors will manage with the free visits.
