Remember to check your collection calendar carefully for your collection dates.

Collected fortnightly, your green wheeled bin is for mixed waste that cannot be separately collected in your other waste and recycling containers.

In 2015, by simply changing the bin you put it in, an extra 3,500 tonnes of waste was sent for recycling. However we still collected around 24,000 tonnes of mixed waste in the green wheeled bin, around half of which could have been collected using one of your other containers.

  • All waste must be contained within your green bin with the lid closed; any excess waste will not be collected.
  • Bins must be presented at the kerbside by 7am.
  • Label your bin with your house name or number.
  • There is a limit of one non recyclable waste bin per household.
  • All households will have their non recyclable waste collected every two weeks, including those on sacks and households sharing communal bins.
