Types of waste
Most households will have their rubbish collected fortnightly. Each household is allowed one black wheeled rubbish bin or a supply of sacks or bag ties.
We will give you a wheeled rubbish bin, or a supply of sacks or bag ties to use when a wheeled rubbish 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.
While recycling is still better for the environment than throwing items away, the process still requires energy and resources. It is therefore better to reduce waste where possible and reuse what we can.
Very large items may need to be taken to one of our recycling centres.
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 rubbish 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.
If you are eligible for a bigger bin and would like to have an assessment, please contact us.
