Bins and recycling

Look out for your new blue lidded wheeled bin and kerbside food caddy

The bins will be delivered together from 20 October until 21 November. There will be an information pack and calendar attached to the blue lidded bin. Your collection day may change so be sure to check your calendar. The bins cannot be collected until the new service starts on the week commencing 24 November, so please ensure you continue with the current system until then.

Find out more about the changes to your collection service, view the leaflet and find answers to your frequently asked questions.
