The refuse and recycling collection will make it easier for you to recycle even more of your rubbish helping us reduce the amount of waste we must send to landfill and in doing so protect the environment.

Your recycling containers are all collected on a fortnightly basis.  Your general refuse bin continues to be collected on a weekly basis.

Please leave all containers at the kerbside by 7 a.m. on the day of collection.

Only residents in areas operating the garden waste scheme have a brown bin, in which to place garden waste.  If you have not received a brown bin, and would like to join the scheme, please ring the cleansing department on 01229 876543.  If you have any questions about the recycling and refuse service please contact our cleansing department on 01229 876543 or email
