A green recycling box is provided for fortnightly collections of glass bottles and jars.
A weekly food waste collection is provided, with a blue food waste bin for the kerbside and a grey kitchen caddy. The council provides free bags to put the food waste in and more can be obtained from Community Hubs and Libraries.
A weekly garden waste collection service is available from March to December at a cost of £28 per bin, with waste going into a reusable brown bag.
A bulky household waste collection is available with large items such as furniture, beds, household appliances and large WEEE collected by Homemakers Community Recycling on behalf of the council. Homemakers charge £15 for up to three items to be collected.
Households can put out two bags of residual waste per fortnight in black refuse bags no larger than 80 litres each.
Residents who have extra nappy and hygiene waste can have yellow bags for this waste stream, which are collected fortnightly with the residual waste.
