Bank Holiday collections

Bins and garden waste sacks are emptied on the usual day. There is no change over Bank Holiday weeks. Please put your bin and sack out at the usual time on the usual day.

Christmas bin collections

Over Christmas and New Year, your bin day may change. More information will be posted nearer the time.

The current garden waste service will stop in mid-December. The new service will commence from February 2022.

Food waste

Find ways to store food External Hyperlink, and use up left-overs External Hyperlink, to reduce the amount of food in your bin, and save you money.


Please put paper, card, tins, cans, aerosols and plastic bottles in the blue lid recycling bin. Unfortunately no plastic other than bottles are accepted (no plastic pots, tubs, trays or packaging). Please put everything loose in the blue lid bin, not in bags.

Empty jars and bottles can go in the glass recycling banks around the Borough.

Clothes and textiles can be taken to the textile banks.

Household waste recycling centres 'HWRC'

You can take excess refuse or other household items to a household waste recycling centre (HWRC).
