Electrical and electronic goods must not be put in your refuse bin for collection, instead they should be taken to your local Household Waste Recycling Site (Tip).
Garden waste must not be put in your refuse bin for collection, instead you should apply for the garden waste service or purchase a garden waste sack.
- Refuse is collected from all households weekly
- Most houses have a wheelie bin which has a dark grey/black lid and is embossed with one dot for their refuse
- Please note that only waste placed in the wheelie bin will be collected - no additional side waste is accepted (exceptions apply: immediately following bank holidays; or during periods of snowy/icy weather due to missed collections)
Please ensure that all items you put out for collection are contained within your wheelie bin.
Your household waste must be put out on the front boundary of your property close to the pavement in a clearly visible location (or in your bin store if that's where it's normally collected from) ready for collection by 6:30am on the morning of your collection day.
Please avoid blocking paths or other public areas.
Additional waste not contained within the wheelie bin will not be accepted and may cause a littering nuisance if attacked by animals and/or birds.
You can take items to a Household Waste Recycling Site (tip) for free, or we can come and collect it by arrangement for a fee.
Pleas see our hazardous waste page for details on how to dispose of items such as asbestos, gypsum and plasterboard.
If you require a bigger or larger bin for your household refuse, we can supply one in certain special circumstances.
Note: Ordinarily we don't supply households with a larger bin if there are fewer than five people resident unless there are exceptional circumstances.
