We collect rubbish that can't be recycled once a week. Householders are given a 240 litre brown wheeled bin, or if they don't have the room to store or put out a bin for collection, they are given a reusable plastic bag.
Examples of things you can put into your brown bin are:
If you have a reusable plastic bag, items in the bag should be bagged up in plastic bags.
Hazardous waste and chemicals must be taken to the household waste recycling centres.
Please put your bin or bag on the boundary of your property by 6.30am on the day of your collection (but not before 6.30pm the night before).
If you are not able to put your bin out for collection due to age or disability and there is no one in your household that can help, you may be eligible for our assisted collection. You can download an application form below, or contact us for more information.
If your home has six or more people living in it, you can ask for more containers. However, if you recycle you should have enough room in your bin or bag.
If your wheeled bin is too big for your household's needs and you are not producing much rubbish, please contact us and we will be happy to replace it with a smaller 140 litre bin.
If your bin has not been collected:
Please call us on 01752 668000 by the end of the following working day and we will return within 48 hours (not including weekends and bank holidays) to empty your bin. Alternatively you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org - additional contact details are shown at the top of the page.
