Recycling / bin collections

Page updated on: 09/08/2019

Your blue recycling bags and black bags are collected on the same day, but on alternate weeks. There is no limit to the number of blue recycling bags you can place out for collection. Your food waste is collected weekly. To help you recycle we provide the following:

  • Blue bags, green food bin and a brown caddy for your kitchen.
  • Black bags are not provided.

Remember you are allowed to put out a maximum of 4 black bags every fortnight. If you are a large family and you are finding it difficult to keep to the four black bag limit please get in touch.

Please make sure your waste is put out before 6am on the day of your collection and no earlier than 6pm the evening before.

Black / blue bags will not be collected from wheelie bins for health and safety reasons. Please put your blue/black bags out for collection at the kerbside. We will collect from ordinary dustbins, as long as the waste is bagged.
