Waste service staff strike

Some of our frontline waste service workers and street cleansers will be on strike from 18 September to 1 October due to a national pay dispute. We are doing everything we can to maintain services during the strike and apologise in advance for the disruption the strike will cause.

Find out more about the strike.

Let's rethink it!


Want to reduce waste and protect the environment? You’re in the right place

Recycling benefits the planet, the people in our communities and the place we call home. That’s why we’re on a mission to reduce waste, reuse and repurpose items we no longer need, and recycle right.


Let’s give recycling some thought!

Be mindful what you throw. Just paper, cardboard, glass, cans, plastic containers go in your recycling bin. Remember, only clean items, so give bottles and containers a good rinse.

This includes:

  • Newspapers, boxes, non-glittery birthday cards
  • Jam jars, sauce bottles, beer bottles, wine bottles
  • Drink cans, aerosols, foil trays, tins
  • Yoghurt pots, shampoo bottles and caps, fruit punnets

For all the ins and outs, see our full list of recyclable items.


Let’s keep waste out of it!

Plastic film, food, clothes and textiles don’t go in your recycling bin.
