What goes in your bins
Wheeled refuse bin
Most households will have their refuse collected fortnightly.
We will give you a wheeled refuse bin, or a supply of sacks or bag ties to use when a wheeled refuse bin is not practical to use. We will only collect from these bins, bags or bags that use our ties.
If your property is given bags or bag ties, you’ll be given enough for a six month period and a new supply will be delivered to you before you run out. If you use them up before this period, you’ll need to take your waste to a recycling centre.
Put anything that can’t be recycled into your wheeled refuse bin. Recycle as much as possible to reduce the amount of waste in your bin. Very large items may need to be taken to a recycling centre.
We won’t collect your bin if you can’t close the lid, and we won’t collect any additional bags of waste that have been left by the side of your bins. These will need to be taken to a recycling centre.
There are two sizes of wheeled refuse bin. To be eligible for a bigger bin there needs to be at least six people in the property, or five people with at least one in nappies.sign in to MyAccount to ask for a new wheeled refuse bin
