There are different containers for recycling and garden waste collections. You can order containers from the council.
Containers for kerbside homes
If you live in a property with a front boundary you will have mixed recycling collected from a blue wheelie bin and food waste collected from a small green food waste bin. Some properties are unsuitable for wheelie bins and instead have mixed recycling collected from green boxes. Read the recycling service guidance on what items we will collect.
