Rubbish and recycling

We provide regular rubbish and recycling collections, local recycling centres and services including clinical waste, large item and assisted bin collections.

Waste and recycling collections week commencing Monday 19 March

Non-recycled waste, plastic bottle and cardboard and garden waste collections

Please continue to place all your containers out on your normal scheduled collection day. If your collection was missed, please leave your containers out until we are able to empty them.

When the contents of garden waste bins are frozen our refuse loaders will endeavour to shake the bins two or three times to try to release the contents as much as possible but some frozen waste may remain in the bin. Unfortunately, we will be unable to return to empty frozen garden waste bins and would ask that you please release the contents before adding any more waste to the bin.

Black box collections

Residents whose black box collections were not completed on Monday 19 March are asked to put their box back out on their next scheduled collection day along with any additional recycling that they may have. Additional recycling should be separated  and placed in carrier bags alongside the box. Alternatively excess recycling may be taken to household recycling centres. Check website for availability.

The council will regularly update the website and social media with the latest position.
