Pink Recycling Sack Scheme

We provide weekly recycling collections.

To find out your collection day please see our A-Z of roads on our Collection Days, Delivery dates and Getting Additional Sacks page.

Please present your sacks at the edge of your property by 7am on your scheduled collection day. Please note that sacks should not be presented earlier than the evening before collection, and should not be placed on the public footpath or grass verge or road or you may be liable to a Fixed Penalty Notice.
