Recycling is a weekly service, collected with your food waste.  Every house has three boxes (red, green and blue), which stack neatly.  More boxes are available on request, at no charge.  Food waste is collected using a silver caddy in the kitchen and a sturdy green one for presenting on collection day.  The Council supplies free caddy liners on request.
 
Garden waste is collected every fortnight from a 240ltr bin.  Extra garden waste bins are available for a small annual charge.
 
Non-recyclable household waste is collected fortnightly from a 180ltr wheelie bin.
 
Garden waste and non-recyclable waste are collected on alternate weeks, so put your recycling, food waste and garden waste out one week, and recycling, food waste and non-recyclable household waste out the next week.
 
Our collection services are simple to use and are a cost-effective way to deliver high quality recyclable materials
