A recycling service is in operation for all flats and houses with communal collections across the borough.

Communal bin stores

Communal bin stores now have bins for mixed recycling as follows: 

  • glass bottles and jars
  • plastic bottles, pots, tubs, and trays
  • tins and cans - including biscuit tins
  • clean kitchen foil and foil food trays
  • aerosols (must be empty)

Please rinse off any food from containers and place them in the recycling bin loose (not in plastic bags).

Separate bins are provided for paper and cardboard. Please flatten down any cardboard boxes and remove as much plastic tape as possible, along with any non-recyclable packaging such as polystyrene, plastic bags and film. These items can be placed in your normal (non-recycling) rubbish bins.

It is important not to leave large or bulky items in the bin store, as this can prevent the bins from being emptied.
