Use the 'When are my bins collected' look-up on the home page.

Excess Waste
During the Christmas and New Year period only waste left in bags beside the black bin on a household waste collection day will be accepted.  Collection teams will only empty one black bin per property unless extra bin capacity has been authorised.

Excess Recyclables
Recyclable materials in cardboard boxes left beside the brown bin on recycling weeks will be collected throughout the year.

Do not put gift wrap in the brown recycling bin. Most gift wrap is plastic film, foil or heavily over-printed, low grade paper. Used gift wrap is also often scrunched up and covered with sticky tape. Overall it has very little, if any, material benefit for recycling.

During the festive period, the Local Recycling Centres will be monitored and emptied regularly.

The Household Waste Recycling Centres will be open except on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
