Plans to charge for the dumping of household waste in Caerphilly Council-run tips have been postponed.
A petition was launched after it was revealed residents disposing of domestic rubbish in vans and trailers at Household Waste Recycling Centres would be charged up to £70 for a one off permit.
The charges were due to begin today, July 1, but a council spokesman has confirmed further consideration is needed.
The planned charges, starting at £35, led to claims by residents they would result in increased fly-tipping across the county borough.
A spokesman for Caerphilly County Borough Council said: “The new charges were due to come into force today but we need to give further consideration to a few operational issues before the scheme can be implemented.
“Our existing policy remains in place while these issues are discussed in more detail.”
