What will the dustmen take/not take?
You can put out any reasonable amount of routine domestic waste
but please remember the Council's waste minimisation and recycling
policies. The dustmen will only take 'normal' household waste
such as kitchen waste, non-recyclable food packaging,
foil and rubbish generated through normal day-to-day life.
They will not take:
- white goods
- electrical appliances (unless they can fit in a normal
size dustbin or black bag) or builders' waste.
Note: If it is not possible for all your
domestic waste to be taken from your refuse storage area then some
may be left until the next collection day.
Garden waste will not be collected by the normal
refuse/recycling crew but by a special garden waste crew and you
must register in advance for this service. Garden waste will
only be collected in the Council's garden waste bag(s) and
in no other type of bag - please see garden waste service
for more information.
For residents with furniture and other bulky waste excluding garden
waste, please see information on our special collection
service. Alternatively, look at our amenity
