Order of collection
Black sacks and blue food waste bins will be collected together in one lorry where they are stored separately.
Pink sacks and the paper and card will be collected in a different lorry. These lorries have split backs in order to keep different sorts of waste separate and prevent contamination.
These vehicles may start collections in different locations and, as such, your recycling and waste may be collected at different times.
