Homes without wheelie bins

Some properties cannot accommodate wheelie bins. These homes receive a weekly sack collection for rubbish and a fortnightly box service for recycling collections. Most flats also receive a weekly rubbish collection.

Flats

Flats with shared bin stores and large containers for their waste, will usually receive a weekly refuse collection. We also provide mini-recycling centres (to recycle glass, cans and paper) where possible.

Houses

Homes that cannot accommodate wheelie bins receive a supply of sacks, delivered on a regular basis through the door. The sacks will have the council logo on them so our crews can easily identify our sacks for collection. Homes can present two sacks per week for collection. Excess sacks will not be collected.

Homes can have traditional style recycling boxes and a brown bin (if they are able to accommodate these containers). We can provide homes on the recycling box service with an additional red box. To request this please contact us on 01707 357000.
