Please note that bin collection days have now returned to normal following the festive period.
We will collect one transparent sack with recycling (glass in the bin please) and/or one bundle of cardboard broken down to a size which would fit in the bin (with the lid closed) if there was space (please tape or tie together).
If you always need to put out extra recycling, order an extra blue bin.
We have introduced these guidelines because we have new collection vehicles. They have higher openings than our old trucks, so we needed to change the way we collect extra recycling.
Our new vehicles with higher openings are:
Crews will empty your blue bin and then refill it with your extra recycling and tip it again, rather than throw it in separately, which is no longer safe for them to do.
However, it may not always be possible to collect additional recycling if there is a high volume on your collection round or if there are traffic delays which jeopardise the completion of bin collections.
