Non Recyclable Waste

How do I use the non recyclable waste collection?

  • Write the name or number of your property on your bin
  • Put your non recyclable waste into your green wheeled bin
  • Make sure the bin is not overfilled and the lid is fully closed
  • Remember to only present waste contained within the bin
  • Present your bin at the kerbside, with the handles facing the road, by 07:00 on the day of collection
