Christmas and New Year collections
Leave your bins out for collection in a clearly visible place at the edge of your property by 6.30am on collection day. Please note we work as normal on bank holiday Mondays and Good Friday. What happens if a collection is missed?
Weekly food waste recycling
Don't put your food in your big, green mixed recycling bin. Put it in your dedicated food recycling bin. Putting food in your big, green mixed recycling bin is expensive because it has to be sorted out and must then be disposed of as refuse. Always put the right thing in the right bin.
You can use your silver kitchen caddy to contain your food waste indoors. You can line it with plastic bags or liners. (Please note that we supply a kitchen caddy to new properties but are unable to supply them generally. Both kitchen caddies and liners are widely available online).
- All of your food waste, cooked or uncooked, such as meat, fish, vegetables, bones, plate scrapings
Please don't recycle:
- Bulk liquids like large amounts of milk or soup. This is because it's difficult and messy for our staff to handle
- Packaging. You can line your bin or caddy with a plastic bag or liner. But do not recycle other packaging in this bin. Recycle cardboard, and some plastics.
- Why is it OK to put plastic bags in food waste but not in the green recycling bin?
