Recycling at home
Most people recycle because it's good for the environment, reduces waste and helps keep your council tax bills down. Are you doing your bit?
What you can recycle
Please put the following items in your smart clear sacks or in the smart banks:
- mixed glass
- paper and card
- plastic bottles
- plastic trays and tubs
- Tetra Paks
- tins and cans and aerosols.
If you live in a house or a small block of flats you can recycle using our Smart Sacks service. If you live in a large block of flats with shared rubbish bins you will probably have a Smart Bank.
Bank holiday collections
Your rubbish and recycling collection days do not change except over Christmas.
Smart Sacks are single-use bags used to collect recycling
Recycling for estates, flats and mansion blocks
If you live on an estate or in a large block of flats you will have a reusable bag to store your recycling and various ways to get it collected depending on where you live.
9am to 5pm Monday to Friday
