Your next 6 monthly waste and recycling calendars are now available online. You can download it, print it, or add it to your i-calender and set up a handy reminder. Don’t forget your collection days will change with the festive bank holidays.


With all the packaging on Christmas food and gifts we’ll be collecting additional bagged waste after the holidays. Visit our website to double check what should be going in to your recycling bin at Christmas. Please don’t put wrapping paper in to your recycling!


We’ll be collecting Christmas trees from 8 January, for two weeks, just leave them by your general waste bin.
