You can recycle many items in the borough using the council’s recycling collection service.
We are working towards a 50% by 2018 recycling rate as a borough, and encourage you to recycle as much as possible to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill.
Kerbside properties can benefit from weekly food waste recycling and fortnightly wheelie bin recycling and garden waste recycling services. Items need to be placed in the correct container for collection. Please check what can be recycled in each container.
Please place your recycling out for collection by 7am on your collection day. Check your collection schedule to make sure you know which weeks to put out your recycling.
If you live in a flat above a shop, or in an estate you will either use the mixed clear sack recycling service, or will have communal recycling facilities. We are working to upgrade the communal recycling services to help you to recycle more. You should check your recycling services to find out what is available to your property.
If you are unable to present your recycling at the edge of your property for collection please arrange an assisted collection.
