Help us to collect your waste

To help us collect your waste:

  • leave your bins out with the handles facing the road
  • make sure your waste fits inside your bins with the lids fully closed
  • only recycle the items that we ask you to in the correct bin. 
  • park your vehicles where they will not obstruct our collection vehicles
  • return your bins back to your property as soon as possible after we have emptied them.

All items should be placed loose inside the blue bin and green box.

On recycling week, textiles should be presented next to your bin or box in a clear or translucent bag, tied up, so that crews can easily identify the contents. Our crews will not collect any textiles that are in charity textile collection bags, regardless of where they are left.which bin do I use?
