Your non-recyclable materials (black bags) and food waste will be collected weekly. Your red box (containing paper and card) and green box (containing cans, tins and plastic bottles only) will be collected on alternate weeks. Please refer to your calendar to find out which items should be placed out for collection on which weeks.
Please remember not to place recyclable items in plastic carrier bags as this will result in the materials not being collected. Please also remember to remove lids from plastic bottles, and that items such as margarine tubs and plastic wrapping are not acceptable for recycling. For a more detailed explanation as to what items can and cannot be recycled please refer to the Leaflet provided with the boxes/caddies.
Please store your waste within the boundary of your property until it is due for collection. Items for collection must be placed on the boundary of your property by 7am on the morning of collection. However, some rounds may have agreement to commence earlier than this. If you wish to find out what time your collections should commence check our Start Times.
If you have not received a Leaflet and/or calendar please contact us.
If you do not have a Green or Red Recycling box or Food Waste Caddies
You can collect recycling boxes and food caddies from our various collection points in the district. If the collection point does not have the item you require in stock please contact us.
