Green bin - refuse

Do it online

Every other week

Green bins and black sacks

Yes please

No thanks

If you have any amount of excess refuse, it will not be taken by the bin men.

Lids must be closed on the bins in order for the bin men to take and empty.

Small electrical items

You can recycle small electrical items, such as radios, toasters, kettles, hair dryers, food mixers, drills, laptops etc. Any item larger than a standard size carrier bag will not be collected. Not sure of how to put them out for collection? Follow these steps:

We cannot take any larger items as space is limited on the collection vehicle. For larger items view our bulky item collection page.


Also alongside your green bin we can recycle batteries. Simply place these in a tied up carrier bag and place on top of your green bin lid - not inside the bin! No car batteries. Only one carrier bag per collection for batteries.
