When do you collect my kerbside recycling boxes?

We currently operate an Alternate Bin Collection system - it's as easy as ABC!

Collections will take place the same day each week. You'll have recycling boxes for paper/card, glass, cans and mixed plastic collected one week, non-recyclable waste collected in your refuse bin the next week and so on. Your garden greens will be collected on the same day as your refuse bin collection.

Recycling Calendar

Here's your new recycling and refuse collection calendar. This tells you which day of the week you'll have your waste collected. One week it'll be recycling, the next week it'll be your refuse and garden greens bin. You can see which week your recycling boxes will be collected and which week your refuse will be collected. This is listed as either week 1 or week 2.

Bank Holidays

Refuse and recycling collections will continue to take place on most Bank Holidays but there may be changes to collections on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.  Please refer to your collection calendar for details or contact us on the numbers below.

We know that people recycle more material at this time of year and so we operate additional vehicles on some rounds to help us collect all this extra material.  This means that you may have one vehicle collecting your paper and card and another vehicle collecting your glass, cans and plastic.  The boxes may be collected at different times of the day so if not all of your recycling is collected at the same time, please leave your boxes out as our crews will be back to empty the others.
