Bins and boxes for waste and recycling

Details of what you can put in your bins and box.

Coronavirus - Update

Help us to keep you and our collection staff safe by taking these simple precautions:

  • please wash your hands before putting your bins out
  • after putting them out wipe bin handles with soap and water, sanitiser sprays, alcohol wipes, normal cleaning agents or disinfectant.
  • repeat the process after you've collected your bin from the kerbside, wiping the handles down well and washing your hands.

Anyone whose household is displaying symptoms of corona virus and self-isolating (even if not a confirmed case) must store their household waste for at least 72 hours before putting it out for collection in their black bin.

Collection time

On your collection day, please put your blue bin and green box out wherever your black and green bins are currently collected from, unless you receive a letter from the council telling you otherwise. Please ensure that your bins and boxes are put out for collection before 7am on the correct day and taken in when emptied.
