Putting your bins out on collection day

An example of stacking boxes

In order to keep our operatives safe during Covid-19, it would be appreciated if householders wash their hands as per NHS guidance and/or wear gloves when putting out their bins and boxes for collection. This will help minimise any chance of coronavirus cross contamination.

Putting your recycling containers out for collection

  • please stack your boxes as shown in the picture above
  • place your blue food waste container or paper sack on the top box to act as a lid to prevent items from blowing away
  • all recycling should be contained within your boxes
  • cardboard should be folded or torn to fit inside your box

Side waste and overfilled black/green bins

  • all waste must be contained inside your black/green bin with the lid closed
  • overfilled or heavy bins cannot be emptied for health and safety reasons
  • bags of waste left outside the black bin will not be collected unless by prior arrangement
  • no additional waste will be collected from outside a green bin
