Avoiding waste, reuse and recycling has never been more important in today’s climate. Did you know that the food waste collected in your blue caddy gets converted into gas and electricity to heat our homes?

Make your New Year green, reduce waste, reuse or repurpose as much as you can and make full use of your kerbside recycling collections.
