Your wheeled bins must be ready by 7am on collection day and placed at your nearest collection point at the boundary of your property. Please ensure your bin is clearly visible for the collection crew and not causing inconvenience to others. 

The Council provides one bin per household for each service you receive. Please see below for further information.  


You can turn some of your waste into compost at home by using a compost bin.

For more information on buying a composter and how to start composting please visit the Council's partnership website or call the helpline on 08445 714444.
