Which Bin Do I Use
We offer a range of containers to help you to recycle and manage your rubbish. You can collect green boxes, White bags, green bags and seagull proof sacks from the Civic Centre during office hours. Alternatively, please use the online form on the right to arrange delivery of any of these containers and wheeled bins. Charges apply to some containers.
- Food and drinks cartons (tetrapaks) can be recycled along with cardboard and paper in your green bags.
- Paper is now collected from a green bag, instead of a green box.
- Please place your containers out by 7am so you don't miss the collection.
- If you need green boxes or green bags, please collect them from the Civic Centre or to order a delivery call 01228 817200 or email: [email protected]
For more information on which items can be recycled in each container please see our how to recycle guide. You can check your recycling collection calendar using the postcode finder. Thank you for recycling.
