We will collect a maximum of 5 black sacks or one 240 litre wheelie bin of refuse per week. Anything extra will not be collected.
Waste can only be loose if it is in a 240L bin, where it can be tipped on the bin lift into the back of the truck.
Make sure all rubbish is properly contained in tied sacks or a bin. Waste items such as ash, hoover dust, personal hygiene products and animal waste should always be placed in sacks.
Ordering a bin
We do not provide general rubbish bins. You will need to buy your own wheelie bin for general rubbish.
You can order a 240L general rubbish bin from our contractors Biffa by calling 08081 965601.
