How Does Your Service Work?

Recycling and Rubbish Collections

On the same day each week we will collect either your recycling bin or your rubbish bin. Your recycling bin will be collected one week and your rubbish bin emptied the following week.

Garden Waste Collection

Your garden waste bin will be collected fortnightly, but this may be on a different day from your other collections.
