Household collections (recycling, food, garden and rubbish) privacy notice

Who will your information be shared with?

We sometimes need to share your information within the council or with other organisations. We will only share your information when necessary and when the law allows us to, and we will only share the minimum information we need to.

For waste and recycling matters we may need to share your information with: 

  • Finance department
  • Legal department
  • Insurance department

In certain cases we may also share your information with other individuals and organisations, e.g. if you make a complaint to your councillor and you have given them with written consent to act on your behalf. Sometimes it may be necessary to share your information without your permission, e.g. for the detection or prevention of crime or if the sharing would help with a safeguarding issue. Please be assured that the council will never sell your information to anyone else.
