Find out when your rubbish is collected, how to get assisted collections, what to do with your bulky waste and more.

The council will:

Furniture Collection 
If you wish to make items of furniture available for use by others, you should contact Community Sustainability Services.

Donating and selling items
You can donate a variety of household items to charity shops, this saves the items from ending up in a landfill site and therefore has a positive impact on the environment too.

One-stop recycling information centre
Your items can be sold or advertised online. There are also regular local car boot sales.

What you can do to help
You can help us maintain our service standards in the following ways:

  • Please make full use of your bin. Break down boxes and other bulky items before placing them in the bin
  • Please put your bin out on the day of collection
  • Please do not place sacks or boxes next to your bin. Make use of the special collection service for extra refuse. Request a collection here
  • Please retrieve your bin as soon as possible after collection

Look after your bin

A charge applies for replacing your wheelie bin if you lose it or want a new one.

Make sure your bin is only left out for the collection day and brought back in after it has been emptied.

The £25 charge will cover the costs of providing new bins, but won't apply if your bin is reported as stolen (with a police crime number), burned out or damaged during normal use.
