For the collection of larger items please go to our bulky waste collection page or see our recycling pages for information on organisations who will take it away and reuse it.

    • The crews are instructed to clear up any mess that may occur when they collect the rubbish. To avoid this happening please do not overfill the bags, tie them up and do not put out in advance of collections this will avoid vermin getting in and ripping the bags open.

    • The crews start at 6am so their finishing times will vary according to the amount of work they need to do to finish the round.
