Recycling and rubbish

Top tasks for Recycling and rubbish

Your normal refuse collection day is unaffected by Christmas and New Year. If you are unsure of your collection day you can download your recycling and refuse calendar here. More information on recycling over the festive period 

The council may take enforcement action if you don't put your waste out at the right time or in the right way.

If you don't know how or on what day of the week you should put your bins out for collection, or if you'd like to purchase a new wheeled bin, you can do this online via the links below.

If someone offers to take away your waste, you must ensure they're a registered waste carrier and ask them to produce proof. If they can't provide proof then it's against the law to employ them. Waste given to illegal carriers often ends up fly tipped, and if the waste is traced back to you then you could be prosecuted, risking a maximum £5,000 fine.

You can find the details of registered waste carriers by visiting the Environment Agency website or calling 08708 506506.
