Extra waste and recycling

We are unable to increase collections or collect any additional side waste.

Please continue to use your brown bin to full capacity, wash and squash bottles/cans, cut up cardboard and if unable to fit all recycling in the bin please store it until the following collection or take it to a Recycling Centre. 

Black bin waste should also be stored as cleanly as possible, i.e. wash out any non-recyclables, dirty foil, etc and use your green bin for food waste.
