Black bags

If you have a grey bin or communal waste bin, we do not provide you with black bags. Local shops sell bin bags and pedal bin liners.

A few rural properties still have their rubbish collected in black bags. Recycling is collected in clear bags.

We collect both kinds of bag at the same time, once a week. Leave them at the boundary of your property (where it meets the pavement, footpath or road) by 06:30 on your collection day.


Place materials for recycling into 2 different bags.

Clear bag for:

  • paper
  • cardboard
  • plastic bottles
  • tins and cans
  • aerosol cans
  • plastic pots
  • tubs
  • punnets and trays
  • cartons
  • foil

Separate clear bag for:

  • glass bottles and jars only
