Depending on where you live you will either have kerbside boxes or a Wheelie Box. You should also have a food waste bin.  

Please separate your items for recycling as described.

  • We are collecting textiles again. Please ensure they are clean and dry. Tie them in a bag and leave them out for collection beside your recycling containers. 
  • If you use the kerbside box service and only have 1 or 2 boxes please rotate the materials you present each week. It doesn’t matter what box you put your recyclables in as long as they are sorted properly.
  • All items must be empty, clean, dry and loose.
  • Please flatten your cans, cartons, plastics and cardboard to save space in your recycling containers.
  • If you have extra recycling you can order an additional box. Alternatively, you can use overflow bags. Only put one type of material in each bag. Never put glass in overflow bags.
