Household waste

Use your bin to dispose of rubbish which cannot be recycled - such as plastic bags and plastic packaging.

You should only use your household waste bin to dispose of rubbish which cannot be recycled - such as plastic bags and  food waste.

Your bin is collected fortnightly. To make sure your rubbish is collected:

  • Put your bins out before 7am on your collection day
  • Put your bins at the edge of your property, at the kerbside, with the handle facing the road
  • Put your waste in securely tied bags inside your bin - we will not collect rubbish left next to your bin
  • Make sure your bin lid is closed. 
  • Take in your bin as soon as possible after collection

If you find it difficult to put out your rubbish and recycling bins or bags, you can apply online for an assisted collection or by calling us on 0300 456 0102.
