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
  • cartons
  • Tetra Paks
  • tins and cans and aerosols.

What you can recycle

Recycling collections

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.

Check your collection day

Bank holiday collections

Your rubbish and recycling collection days do not change except over Christmas.
