28 August 2019 - TOR2 are currently running behind on some of their recycling collection rounds. Please read the latest update on the situation.

If you live in a block of flats that has more than 12 units then you will have a range of recycling bins outside your block in a designated bin area. The frequency of communal collections depends on the location of the property. Please contact TOR2 for more information on our collection dates.

Due to the fact that space varies at different sites, not all flats have the same recycling facilities. Click on a material to see what your recycling facilities could include:
