Waste and recycling updates

Collection information

Recycling collections:

If you do not receive a recycling collection of your glass, plastic and tins or paper and cardboard on your normal collection day please remove your containers from the highway and represent on your next scheduled collection. We will make every effort to ensure you are not missed for a consecutive week.

If you have a missed collection of your black bin, garden waste bin or food waste please contact us and report this as a missed collection. Also if you have your recycling missed for a second consecutive week please let us know.

If you have additional recycling you can present it in see through plastic bags. Please continue to sort your recycling and use a box you have to present your glass.

Domestic waste collections:

Please make sure your Garden Waste bin is presented with a valid sticker. Bins presented without a sticker will not be emptied.

Damaged / unused containers

If you have any recycling containers that you can no longer use or need, you can drop them off at our depot on Eastern Avenue. Please leave them in the visitors car park on the pallet next to the sandbags. The drop off is available between 9am and 4.45pm, Monday to Friday (not including bank holidays).
