  • Household batteries- place a clear sack on your green-lidded bin

Domestic waste collection is:

  • Black bin for non recyclable waste
  • Black caddy with orange lid for weekly food waste collection
  • Small electrical items or small amount of textiles – place in a carrier bag on your black bin.

Garden Waste is:

  • Brown bin for garden waste only. This will be collected on the same day as your regular collections but may be on either the refuse or recycling week. However, we have identified a small number of properties where the collections are showing on different days and are working to resolve this.
