Rubbish and recycling collection arrangements

 With Christmas comes extra waste and recycling so, to help you, householders will be able to place a maximum of 2 black bags by the side of your wheelie bin for collection. This will only be for your first scheduled wheelie bin collection following Christmas Day after which any unauthorised side waste will not be collected.
