Useful tips

Help us keep our collection service effective.

  • If your property has a waste storage area, use it. Please don't leave your rubblish and recycling on the pavement.
  • If your property doesn't have a storage area, put your rubbish and recycling on the pavement outside your property before 7am on the morning of your collection (not the night before).

Don't forget that leaving rubbish and recycling out on the wrong day is an offence and you could face a fixed penalty notice and/or prosecution.
