Our Recycling Collection

What do we Recycle?

To find out what you can and can't recycle in the district, please download Your Guide to Our Household Waste and Recycling Collection Service.

Please ensure that all recycling material is clean and dry and put loose into your bin or box for collection. Please do not put your recycling items into plastic bags or refuse sacks, as these cannot be recycled and will cause contamination.

Any excess recycling that you cannot fit in your bin can be placed in a rigid container next to your recycling wheeled bin or box for collection. Alternatively, you can take it to your local Household Waste Recycling Centre.

Small Electrical Equipment, Textiles and Household Batteries

To use this service, place each type of material into separate carrier bags (e.g. one for textiles, one for batteries and one for electrical or electronic items), tie them up and place them alongside or on top of the lid (not inside) of any of your bins on your normal collection day. If you do not have carrier bags, electrical items can be left loose, batteries can be left in freezer/sandwich bags and textiles in pedal size liners.

The refuse vehicles have been fitted with small compartments under the vehicles to store these items separately. To ensure they can be collected and recycled, the items must be small enough to fit into a standard-sized carrier bag.

If you think your items could be reused by someone else, you could take your clothes / electrical equipment to a reuse shop at one of the district's Household Waste Recycling Centres, deposit them at a textile bank, or gift them to a local charity.

Car batteries can not be taken from your door step collection but they can be taken to a Household Waste Recycling Centre.
