Help us to help you
Keep all of your waste and recycling bags within your property boundary until collection day. On your collection day please leave your garden waste bags near your property boundary.
If you do not have a front garden leave your garden waste heavy-duty canvas bags on the pavement no earlier than 5.30pm the evening before collection day.
Most residential properties with gardens are provided with three free heavy-duty canvas bags. Worn or damaged bags will be replaced free of charge.
We aim to send out replacement bags within 10 working days of your request.
We recommend that you write your door number and postcode on your bags for easy identification.
To dispose of the worn bags, leave it for collection with your weekly refuse.
If you have a large garden you can purchase up to six additional sacks.
Please write your door number and postcode on your additional bags for easy identification. Only six bags will be emptied on your collection day.
