Recycling information


Your recycling bin (with the yellow lid) is collected every 2 weeks.

View all bin days

Your recycling bin has a yellow lid and is collected every 2 weeks.

  • Put the right items in your recycling bin otherwise it may not be collected.
  • Empty items before they go in the bin but don’t worry too much about rinsing them first.
  • Squash bulky containers down. Lids can be recycled too; just screw them on to their containers.  
  • Don't place items for recycling in a garbage or plastic bag - put them loose in the bin. However plastic bags and flexible plastic packaging must be ‘bagged up’ in a plastic bag, then this bag is put in your recycling bin.

You can also recycling plastics that hold their shape including:

  • plastic bottles and containers – including bottle tops, takeaway boxes and yoghurt pots
  • broken hard plastic toys (no batteries)
  • other hard plastic household items such as CD cases, tupperware and plastic cutlery
  • plastic plant pots.
