Putting your waste/recycling out for collection

We could spend another £90k on services if everyone recycled properly

Contact us if you need help putting out your bins.


  • Make sure the lid of your bin closes properly. If a bin is overfilled, we may not collect it.
  • Don't put any waste next to your bin: we will not pick this up. Take items that won't fit in your bin to a Recycling Centre, or request a bulky uplift.
  • Don't put heavy material like soil or rubble in your bin. It's not safe for us to lift heavy bins. Take it to a Recycling Centre.
  • Do not secure the lid of your bin with a bungee cord or any other attachment.

When to put out your bins

Collections begin at 6:30am. Put out your bins and boxes by then to ensure they're collected.
