Our approach to recycling and refuse
We care about the future of the local environment, and we are involved in a wide range of initiatives to minimise waste, increase recycling and provide a sustainable future for us all.
We provide a household kerbside collection service for paper & cardboard; plastic bottles, pots, tubs & trays; cans, foil & aerosols; cartons (foil & waxed lined); glass bottles & jars; and food waste, which is currently available to over 80% of householders.
We also have about 40 recycling sites located across the Borough for residents who may not have access to recycling at home. These sites provide recycling for paper & cardboard; plastic bottles, pots, tubs & trays; cans, foil & aerosols; glass bottles & jars; and textiles.
Garden Waste Service
The Council runs a Garden Waste Service which involves house to house collections throughout the borough.
