Household waste should not be burned. It should be placed in your wheelie bin or it can be taken to any of the Council’s local amenity sites free of charge. Large items, such as furniture, can be collected by the Council’s bulky waste service.
Many items of household waste can be recycled. Maximum use should be made of the Council’s doorstep collection service for designated recyclables. Alternatively, glass, plastics, metals, paper, cardboard and clothes can be taken to recycling banks located at a number of locations throughout the district, including the Council’s amenity sites.
A lot of waste can be converted to garden compost in a composting bin to produce a soil conditioner and save money on commercial products.
