Guide for all types of waste collections.
All rubbish should be properly stored in large, tied black bags
These can be purchased in any supermarket.
Carefully wrap any broken glass or other items that could cause injury, and label if appropriate
Keep all of your waste bags within your property boundary until collection day
On your collection day leave your tied black bag on the end of your property boundary
If you do not have a front garden leave the tied black bag on the pavement no earlier than 5.30pm the evening before collection day
Suggestion: We do not supply any type of waste container to our residents. To avoid household rubbish bags being split open by foxes, birds and other animals we strongly recommend the use of regular domestic dustbins (not wheeled bins) to safely contain your black bags.
All recycling should be properly stored in clear recycling bags. These can be ordered per roll or automatically delivered to your property to save you time.
If you have a 'big cardboard' item, please leave it bundled next to your tied recycling bags

The food waste bin will be emptied each week by the same crew that collect the garden waste.
Please place your food bin with your garden waste at your property boundary for collection.
The food waste will make compost along with the garden waste in the West London Composting facility at Harefield.
Leave the purple bag tied up ready with your other dry recycling on the normal collection day.
The purple sacks will be separated from the other dry recycling when the lorry deposits its load and sent to a textile merchant. Money from the sale of the textiles will go to the Mayors' nominated charity for the year. The service is for the convenience of residents.
If you wish to recycle cooking oil, there is a bin at Harefield civic amenity site.
