Changes to recycling: To make sure more of our waste is recycled, we are changing the way we collect and dispose of recycling. The change will see glass, cans and plastics continue to be collected in the current blue bins, and paper and card collected in new blue bags from May 2022. See our FAQ page for more information

We are currently working on changing all communal properties to the new dual stream recycling service. Purple bins are being provided for paper and card and blue bins for glass, cans and plastic.

Garden Waste Service

If you would like your garden bin(s) emptied in 2022, you will need to sign up to our garden waste scheme.

It costs £36 per garden bin for fortnightly collections. This is for a maximum of 23 collections (the garden bin service is suspended over Christmas and New Year).
