When do you collect my kerbside recycling boxes?
A new system for collecting recycling and household waste, including kerbside collections of plastics for recycling was introduced in October 2009. This is known as the Alternate Bin Collection scheme, ABC! This means that recycling boxes are 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.
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.
