From 12 June 2017 we are extending our kerbside recycling service to more properties and are asking everyone to sort their recycling slightly differently. We may also be asking some of you to put your bins, bags and boxes out on a different day.
Please check your new collection calendar (delivered to all households in mid-May) to confirm the day of the week to put your refuse, garden waste and recycling out for collection.
From 12 June onwards, please put your paper into a green bag with your cardboard. You can now also place empty food and drink cartons e.g. tetrapak into the same bag. Please put your plastic into a separate green bag - do not mix with your paper, cardboard and cartons. Use your green box for your tins, cans and glass only.
If you would like to find out more about the improvements to our services, please come along to our recycling roadshows.
