Dry recycling is the material that goes in the 240 litre blue-lid bin and is collected fortnightly. Your bin should be put out at the edge of your property by 7am on the day of collection.
What can I recycle?
Body of bin
- Mixed glass bottles and jars
(green, brown, clear and blue glass - please remove caps, tops, lids and corks)
- food and drinks cans
- aluminium trays/foil trays
- plastic bottles (including plastic caps) and containers
- beverage cartons
- postal advertising
- white and brown envelopes
- paper (including shredded paper)
- telephone directories (including yellow pages)
Please flatten and where possible remove all staples and packaging tape. Please remove all polystyrene and bubble wrap. Pieces of cardboard that will not fit in the bin can be flattened and placed next to the bin for collection.
If your blue lidded bin is broken or has gone missing please visit our 'order a new/replacement container' web page for further information on how to request a replacement.
Help putting your bin out
If you are unable to put your blue-lid bin at the edge of your property and there is no-one else in your household over 16 years old who can do so you can apply for an assisted collection, and the refuse collectors will collect and return your bin from the storage point.
There is a charge of £33.85 for a 140 litre / £39.50 for a 240 litre grey wheeled bin (general household waste) for new properties.
Please contact us to order your grey bin and to arrange to start collections from your property.
