Recycling and waste

You should always dispose of your waste responsibly

Waste is becoming an incredibly large problem throughout the world - the UK alone throws away a massive 26 million tonnes of rubbish every year.

Please ensure that all household rubbish is bagged up in bin liners and placed in the bins provided outside your property; it is incredibly important that you do this, as the refuse collectors will not take any items that are left outside of the bins. Bags of rubbish not only are a general eyesore but encourage the escalation in the rodent population.

Environmental Enforcement Officers have also been known to examine stray bags for information and impose fixed fines on the culprit - so beware!

To find when your bins get collected visit the following website:

Check your collection day here. Your green bin is for recycling and your black bin is for other household waste. Check what you can and can't recycle.
