Bins, rubbish & recycling Where and when to leave your bins


Outside your home, easily seen from the road. If you live in a terrace, put bins at the end of the alley nearest your home (outside any gates).


By 7am on the collection days. Find your bin collection day


Put the right things in the right bin. If you put the wrong things in, we'll put an advice sticker on the bin and not empty it. See which recycling bin to use


Don't overfill the bin. Make sure the lid fits properly. We may not take it if it is overloaded.
