  • No batteries! Never put batteries in your bins as they get damaged in bin lorries and cause fires! This includes batteries in everyday items, such as mobile phones, toothbrushes, toys, e-cigarettes and vapes. They should be recycled at various locations including household recycling centres, supermarkets and shops. Check Recycle Now's Recycling Locator.

Only waste contained within the bin will be collected. If you have too much rubbish to fit in your bin, you can take it to a Household Recycling Centre for free.

We also offer a Bulky Waste collection service for larger household items that cannot be sold or given to charity.
