Small collection vehicle breakdown

Our small collection vehicles are currently off the road awaiting repairs. 

If you have your recycling collected by one of these vans, we will collect additional recycling from you as soon as these vehicles are back on the road.

Please do not report your collection as missed. We are unable to return until these vehicles are roadworthy again.

Collection delays

There are currently delays on our collection rounds. Please leave your bins and boxes out and they will be emptied as soon as possible. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Film recycling at supermarkets

Some types of plastic films can be recycled at carrier bag collection points at the larger stores of most major supermarkets.  

If you shop online, most supermarkets will also allow you to hand back your unwanted bags back to the driver for recycling.

Top tips:

  • As a general rule if you can stretch the film it can be recycled
  • Tear off sticky labels wherever possible
  • Make sure all items are clean and free of food
  • Please don't recycle, compostable or biodegradable bags

For further information, and to see which stores have plastic bag recycling facilities in your locality, please see recycle now's webpage on plastic film recycling.
