Your questions answered - weekly recycling collections

Flats

I live in a block of flats, will I receive the new red and blue recycling boxes?

No. Some areas do have alternative recycling facilities so please continue to use these.  The recycling bins will be marked to show you what to put where. This includes paper, card, glass bottles and jars, tins and cans, and plastic bottles and trays.

I live in a flat above a shop, will I receive the new red and blue recycling boxes?

No. We provide a twice weekly service to flats above shops. Rubbish is collected in purple sacks, which the council supplies. Please do not use any other bag as this will be treated as fly-tipping and you may be prosecuted. This service is currently being reviewed.
