We provide weekly collections of blue food waste bins, blue paper and card recycling boxes, pink and clear recycling sacks, small electrical items (put out in plastic shopping carrier bags) and black refuse sacks.
Your recycling and waste should be accessible and visible on the inside edge of your property by 7am on your scheduled collection day.
We may be able to help you put out your recycling and waste.
You can check your collection day using our directory.
What should I do if my rubbish is not collected?
If we receive a valid missed collection report, we will return and collect within 24 hours from the time of the report.
