Refuse Bins (Non-recyclables)


green-bin-copy.pngEach household has a 140 litre green bin for waste that cannot be recycled or composted. Waste in this bin will go to landfill or incineration, so please ensure there is no recyclable or reusable materials, textiles, food, or garden waste in it. As many everyday household items can be recycled, there should be very little that needs to be placed in this bin.

Check out WasteAware to see how you can reduce your waste.

The refuse bin is collected fortnightly.

Only refuse contained within the 'closed lid' wheeled bin will be collected. The collection crew have been advised not to collect any extra waste.

The wheeled bin must be left at the property boundary by 6am on the day of collection.

Please use the online service to enquire about your collection day.

The Council offers several options for residents with children in nappies;

  • A reward of up to £50 is available to parents who use real nappies. Based on the cost of disposable nappies, using real nappies can save up to £500 for the first child, with even bigger savings to be made if you re-use them for other children.  Or you can choose a starter pack.
  • White nappy sacks, with the Council logo on, can be purchased online for £10 per roll plus postage. These will be collected once a fortnight, at the same time your refuse bin is emptied, provided they are left next to the green refuse bin.  

Nappy sacks can also be purchased for £10 per roll or 40p per sack from (although please note some may be closed at this time);

 

Missed Bins and Flats

If your collection is missed please use this form and report it to us within 48 hours and, should we have genuinely missed it, we will return within 48 (working) hours of being notified.

If you live in a flat you may have different refuse arrangements, such as communal bulk bins.

Collection Assistance

Elderly, infirm and disabled residents who have no other resident to help them move the bin may apply for an assisted collection. The bin must still be visible and the front of the property but does not have to be moved to the boundary. To apply for this service, complete the online Application Form below.
