Recycling collection

Recycling is collected every two weeks. The recycling bins with a blue lid should be put out by 6.30am on your collection day.

If you need a bin with a blue lid you can order a bin online.

Cardboard that won’t fit into your bin should be flattened and tied in a bundle. Please leave this next to your bin. To keep it dry, you can put it in a clear bag (not a black or coloured bag). Put any cardboard stained/dirty with foodstuffs, grease, paint or dirt in your rubbish bin, this cannot be recycled.   

Some items that can’t go in your recycling or rubbish bin can be taken to a community recycling centre (the tip).
