Mixed recycling bin - weekly collection

Forms

Christmas and New Year collections.

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?

Weekly mixed recycling bin

Your green wheelie bin is for mixed recycling. NO GLASS.

Please recycle:

  • Cardboard - any type, such as boxes, packaging, cards), coloured paper and envelopes
  • Cartons - such as drinks or soup cartons
  • Plastics - such as plastic bottles, tubs, cups, trays, pots, blister packs. Download the leaflet below for more details of what you can and can't recycle in this bin
  • Paper - white or coloured, printed or plain, including envelopes (even with windows)
  • Tins and cans - both steel and aluminium, including aerosol cans (fully expended please)

Put recycling in your bin loose, not bagged. It's easier and cheaper to sort them out afterwards. DO NOT PUT GLASS IN THIS BIN.

If you have too much recycling for your bin you can leave it next to your bin in a clearly labelled bag and we will take it. Large pieces of cardboard, such as packaging from a new TV, can be left next to your bin and we will take it.

 Put clothing, textiles, shoes and accessories in a separate, sealed, clearly-labelled bag by your bin. Clothing and textiles should be clean. Shoes should be tied together in pairs. No duvets, cushions or pillows.

Can I have an extra bin?
