Recycling collection

Can I have my recycling collected or do I need to drop it off myself?

For residents who put their rubbish out in bags or into standard domestic dustbins, free clear recycling bags will be delivered every three months. Recycling should only be placed in these bags and left out for collection on the same day(s) as your rubbish is picked up. Please see Clear Bag Recycling service for more information. 

Under no circumstances will recycling be picked up in black bags.

For residents in blocks of flats who use large, bulk containers for their rubbish, a Mixed Bank recycling service is available. Please see Mixed Bank Recycling for more information. 

Additionally there are Mini Recycling Centres located throughout the borough providing facilities to recycle. To find your local centre, see:
