Waste and recycling collections

Due to the recent bank holiday there will be a delay to our waste and recycling collections.

Bin deliveries and removals

Due to high demand, bin deliveries and removals are currently taking up to three weeks, rather than the 10 working days advised. 

Extra waste

Show all parts of this guide

1. Additional waste

Over 60% of waste can be recycled. If you are finding your black bin is too small, it may be because you are not recycling everything you could be.

  1. Please see our guide to what you can recycle in each of your containers
  2. Remember that you can fit more in them if you fold your cardboard and squash your plastic bottles
  3. You can order additional recycling boxes if you regularly need extra space in your boxes
  4. If you would like additional advice on reducing your waste contact us and we can arrange for a visit from a waste advisor.

Side waste

We operate a no side waste policy.  All general waste should be presented for collection inside your black wheeled bin with the lid down.

If needed, you can purchase a supply of additional waste sacks

Black bags left next to your bin will not be collected. 

Additional bins

We can sometimes supply additional bins for residents who produce healthcare waste or large households.  These are provided at our discretion, and on condition that they recycling service is used fully. Please contact our customer support team on  01626 361101 to discuss.
