Simply Weekly Recycling


Real Christmas tree recycling

Real Christmas tree recycling.

Leave your bins out for collection in a clearly visible place at the edge of your property by 6.30am on collection day. Please note we work as normal on bank holiday Mondays and Good Friday. What happens if a collection is missed?

Quick guide to what goes where

It's really important to put the right thing in the right bin. What can I do if the Council can't recycle it? Why do we recycle fewer plastics now?

Your collections


Mixed recycling in your green wheelie bin. Paper, card, cartons, cans and certain plastics. NO GLASS, NO FOOD, NO TEXTILES.

Why do we recycle fewer plastics now?


Glass recycling in your recycling box. Glass bottles and jars ONLY.


Textiles, clothing, shoes and accessories in a clear, sealed, labelled bag by your other recycling.


Food waste in your food recycling bin. All food waste except bulk liquids (like large amounts of milk or soup). No packaging, but you can wrap your food waste in plastic bags.


Refuse in  your black wheelie bin. If it can't be recycled in your other bins. NO FOOD.

EVERY FORTNIGHT (subscribers only)

Garden waste recycling in your brown wheelie bin. Check your garden waste collection week. We will send a new garden waste calendar each March.

Right thing, right bin
