What Goes In My Wheelie Box

More and more residents are recycling in their wheelie boxes, reducing the amount of waste going to landfill and minimising their impact on the environment. 

Please note that due to COVID-19, in order to reduce the hand sorting of materials by staff, there are some temporary changes to how your recycling should be sorted. Click here for more information. 

We cannot currently accept clothing, textiles, batteries or hand tools.

Overflow bags cannot be accepted at present due to the temporary collection measures in place.
