Green bin collections

  • Present your bin by 6am to ensure it is emptied

  • Ensure that the bin is safely accessible from the edge of your property and does not cause an obstruction

  • Take your bin back in promptly as leaving it out can block pavements making it difficult for wheelchair and pushchair users.

  • If needed we can help you move your bin. Contact us to arrange assistance

  • We will not collect any side waste and the lid on the bin must be closed

  • Help us by marking your bin with your name and address

The following items cannot be placed in the domestic bins:

  • Soil, bricks and concrete
  • Tyres or car parts 
  • Building rubble and stones 
  • Paints, oils or solvents 
  • Fixtures and fittings (bathroom fittings and kitchen units)

Missed bins
