Grey rubbish bags will no longer be provided

  • Once your grey bags have run out, you will have to buy your own rubbish bags.
  • We will still only collect TWO bags of household rubbish from you.
  • You can use any black refuse bags for household rubbish, but they must be no larger than 80 litres (standard size bin bags).
  • Please do not use the red or purple bags for household rubbish as they will not be collected.
  • You can carry on using your supply of grey bags until they run out.
  • Red, purple and food recycling bags will still be available, free of charge.

 

Exceptions to the two bag restriction

Since 2013 we have operated a restricted household rubbish collection service of two bags per fortnight.  As a result we are now recycling 64% of our all our household waste.

Residents with nappy and hygiene waste can have dedicated yellow bags, these are collected fortnightly with your household rubbish. You can collect bags for this service from your local Community Hub.

If your household has more than five residents you can Contact Us for advice about managing your waste.

Ash can be put in a dustbin and will be collected in addition to your rubbish bags, please make sure ashes are cold.

On your first refuse collection day after Christmas, you may put out two additional bags of household rubbish.
