What We Collect


All recyclable material should be put loose in your blue-lidded bin. This bin is collected every other week with your green / green-lidded bin. Find out more about our recycling collection.

Garden and Food Waste

Garden and food waste should be put in your green / green-lidded bin. This bin is collected every other week with your blue-lidded bin.

Refuse (General Waste)

Other household waste that cannot be recycled or composted should be put in your grey bin. This bin is collected every other week, on alternate weeks to the recycling / garden and food waste collections.

Small Electrical Equipment, Textiles and Household Batteries

These can be left on top of the lid/or by the side (not inside) of any bin on your normal collection day. In order to be collected and recycled, these must be small enough to fit into the storage facility at the rear of the refuse collection vehicle.

Clinical Waste

A clinical waste collection service can be provided to residents who require it (subject to confirmation by a medical practitioner).

Large Household Items (Bulky Waste)

If you have any large items of household waste that you wish to dispose of, we offer a chargeable large item collection service.

Additional Refuse and Recycling

If you have any additional recycling, you can place it in a box or rigid container next to your blue lidded bin for collection.

If you only have one green / green-lidded bin, you can put out up to three additional green sacks of garden waste next to it for collection.

If you require a larger capacity for your recycling or garden and food waste, please see How to Get a Bin for further information about requesting additional bins.

Please note that no additional refuse (general waste) next to your bin will be collected.

Putting your Bins out for Collection

Please place your wheeled bins (or equivalent receptacles) at your property boundary with their lids down, clearly visible to the collection crews, by 06:00 on your collection day.
