We have had to change the way that some of our services operate to meet the guidelines set out by the government in response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Each property is supplied with two recycling boxes which are emptied weekly.
Households are provided with both a small food caddy to use in the kitchen and a larger food waste bin to store outside. The large food waste bin will be emptied weekly.
Most households are provided with a wheeled bin for any general household rubbish that cannot be recycled. This will be collected fortnightly.
Properties that aren’t suitable for wheeled bins are provided with seagull proof sacks and in almost all cases will receive a weekly collection.
If you are missing any of the containers you can get a free replacement.
If you live in a block of flats please see the flats and communal collections page.
