Getting rid of your waste correctly

Household waste (rubbish, recycling, green waste)

We collect household rubbish every week. Put it out in your black bin (or communal bin).

We collect recycling every two weeks. Put it out in your blue-lid bin (or communal recycling bin or clear sacks). If you're not sure whether something can be recycled, check our recycling directory.

We collect green waste every two weeks. Put it out in your green waste bin. Green waste collections usually run between April and November. Make sure you know when the collections start and end. During the green waste season, we collect recycling and green waste on opposite weeks.

Check your bin collection dates to find out when your bins are collected.

If you have too much household waste, you can book an appointment to take it to the Household Waste Recycling Centre at Haverton Hill.
