New Recycling Collection

New Recycling Collection. All households and businesses will be offered a dry mixed recycling collection alongside their waste collection, collected at the same time and on the same day. 

New Collection Days

New collection days: There will be some changes to collection days. this will make the collection routes more efficient, give the collection team enough time to add the recycling collection to the round and hopefully use a little bit less fuel too. 

New Collection Protocols

New collection protocols: We've had to make some changes to the protocols you need to follow so that we can accept the waste and recyclign you present for collection. For some people this might not be much or any change, but please take a moment to think about what changes you might need to make. 

Collection Day Overview
