Christmas and New Year bin collection

Over the bank holiday period there will be changes to domestic, trade waste and recycling collection arrangements. If your normal collection day is any day other than Monday, your waste, recycling, food and garden waste collections will be affected. You can see the revised collection dates here.

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.

right stuff, right bin
