Check your next waste and recycling collections​

The Waste Strategy Team will be on hand in the build up to Christmas handing out green recycling bags and food waste liners​​.


Wheelie bins, bags and food caddies must be put out on the kerbside before 6:00am on the day of collection, or no earlier than 4:30pm the day before.

The Recycling Centres will be closed 23rd - 26th December and 30th December - 1st January 2019.

Please check the opening hours​ before you plan your visit.

The commercial recycling centre at Bessemer Close will be closed on Bank Holidays.​ 

Please be aware that the sites are well used over the Bank Holiday weekends, and there is a possibility of queues.  Peak times are between 10am -3pm, so please allow for extra time if you are planning to visit during these times and remember, items cannot be walked onto the sites.


We also offer a collection of large items that cannot be re-used, directly from your property. This service is free for recyclable items, but there is a small charge for items that cannot be recycled.​ Find out about our Bulky Item Collections. 


Take it to the tip.
