New regulations brought in last year to limit the amount of commercial waste being deposited at the tip in Douglas are working well according to the chairman of the committee that runs it.

Councillor Bill Malarkey said the new measures, which included a height restriction to 2.2 metres, along with a six rubble sack limit and 15-minute stay time, were key factors in a fall in the amount of waste deposited.

‘If it is domestic waste there is no charge for disposing of that and we don’t want to stop it,’ he said.
