Putting your recycling out for collection

All items must be clean, dry and loose. Do not put items contained in plastic bags! All recyclables should be rinsed out where necessary. Make sure they are contained within the bin or box to prevent them getting wet.

Recycling wheelie bins have blue lids

Your household recycling 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.
