Recycling and rubbish

  • What goes in your recycling bin?

    There have been a few changes to what we accept in your blue-lidded recycling bin because we are using a different sorting facility. Check what you can and can't recycle.

  • Household recycling and rubbish collections

    Find out what can go in your bins, when your waste collection day is and about bulky and clinical waste collections.

  • Food waste collection

    The food bin is emptied every week, so should be put out at the same time as your rubbish and recycling bins. We will take your food waste loose in your green caddy, wrapped in newspaper or in a plastic bag.

  • Textiles and electrical items

    We can take away your small unwanted electrical items and textiles as part of your regular recycling and rubbish collections.

  • Recycling centres

    You can recycle waste at your local community recycling centre or recycling bank, in addition to the fortnightly recycling bin collections.

  • Commercial waste

    Rubbish produced by commercial businesses is classed as commercial (or trade) waste. The cost of commercial waste collection is not covered by business rates.

  • Street cleaning

    Our street cleaning service includes road sweeping, clearing leaves, litter picking, emptying dog and litter bins, clearing dog foul, removing dead animals and graffiti removal.

  • Clinical waste collections

    We provide a free fortnightly clinical waste collection service for residents treating themselves in their own home.
