We are going to have to start paying to dump some of our rubbish.

We will have to fork out to get rid of things like soil, bricks and tyres at Cornwall Council tips.

Garden waste, white goods and electrical appliances will still be free to dump.

The charges will come in from September as the council tries to save money.

It reckons the charges could save almost £500,000.

The waste which will be charged for and the respective charges are:

- Soil / rubble (including bricks, blocks, tiles, rubble, paving slabs, concrete posts, sanitary ware, toilets, etc. )  - £1.75 per sack.
- Plasterboard (including gypsum related products) - £4.40 per sheet
- Asbestos - bonded type only - £10.10 per sheet
- Tyres - £3.20 per tyre (Commercial and agricultural vehicle types will not be accepted. There will be no charge for bicycle tyres.)
