Blue Bins

You can recycle household batteries and small electrical items (kettles, irons, toasters, etc) by placing them in a bag and leaving it on top of your blue bin. Our crews will collect them and keep them separate on the vehicle, and then recycle them.

If you regularly have lots of recycling then you can have an extra blue bin for a one off cost of £30. Please give us a call and we will deliver one.

Food Waste Caddies

You should have two Silver food caddies (one outdoor and one indoor) to use for your food waste collection.

See our food waste collection page on how to use the service and what happens to your food waste.

Green Bins

Items in the green bin will be composted, so please use it for garden waste; like grass clippings, leaves, small twigs, flowers, etc.
