It’s important that your recycling bin and green waste bin are placed out on the correct day, as they are collected on alternate weeks. 

You will need to place your bins out before 6am on the day of collection. You will need to place you bins 1 metre apart from each other and clear of trees, light and power poles, parked vehicles and driveways. If you live in a court, place your bins on the straight section of the road near the court.

  • Overfill your bins so that the lid remains open

Once emptied, please collect and return to your home.
