Recycling collection days have changed

We changed the recycling collection days as of 8 April 2019.

If you live in a house or receive a weekly collection from your front door you have been sent a letter notifying you of your new collection day. Please note, letters have only been sent to properties affected. Find out more about the changes.

Recycling and waste at home

40 per cent of the waste we produce can be recycled through the recycling bags and purple recycling bins and we provide a range of other services, including food waste collections, garden waste collections and bulky waste collections, to help make recycling easy.

You really can make a difference by recycling. By recycling more, we could:

  • Create up to 563,000 new jobs nationally
  • Save up to £500,000 a year on waste disposal
  • Tackle climate change by reducing greenhouse gases waste makes when it rots in landfill sites
  • Save energy. Did you know that every plastic bottle recycled saves enough energy to power a light bulb for six hours
  • Reduce the need for mining materials which create substantial air and water pollution.
