We have a humongous green bin for garden/food waste which is collected every Monday,general waste & paper fortnightly and recyclable plastics,metal & glass every fourth week.Additional bins available for a nominal one off fee.
No limits or appointments required for domestic waste at the recycling centre, some items like Tyres are charged for.
From this guide
They say it depends on the council, however, it would ruin any chance of anything getting recycled/incinerated.
If I have a mega mega chopping session of montana, shrubs etc then I take bags to the tip but it's not open everyday.
Shame there is not a national charge / plan .
For example we can't put glass in our recycling bins- the only district council in this county but we can put in foil & plastic such as fruit punnets. You almost need a degree to learn the rules if you visit another area!!

Had to laugh at the comment about someone's tip which the staff keep tidy - I was thoroughly told off by the staff at ours for dropping leaves and tiny bits of twig when I took a car load of prunings, and directed to take a broom and clear up!
