Changes to collections over the festive period

Changes to collections over the festive period can be found in our news pages

Your green (non-recyclable general waste) bin should only be used to collect those items that cannot be recycled at the kerbside.

Brown bin

Recycle your cooked and uncooked food waste together with your garden waste

Blue bin

Recycle your household paper, cans, cardboard, cartons and rigid plastic packaging

Assisted lift collections

The assisted lift service is only provided for people who, due to their age or disability are unable to present or retrieve their own bin(s), and have no other means of support to do this.
