Recycling, rubbish and street cleaning

We provide households in the District with a comprehensive multi-material recycling service, working together with our partner Veolia.

Our aim is to make it as easy as possible to recycle and cut down waste. Achieving this means we can reduce our impact on the environment.

We also help keep our streets and public spaces clean, safe, tidy and attractive – making sure that the district continues to be a great place to live in, work and visit.

View information on rubbish and recycling including about bins and collection days, what to do with specific waste items and how to report street cleanliness issues.

Extreme weather and waste collections

Due to the high temperatures we have been experiencing and in order to prioritise the health and safety of our staff, the waste and recycling collections will be taking place earlier than usual, to avoid the hottest time of the day.  We will continue to monitor the temperatures over the weeks and will advise if this arrangement will continue for longer. 

Please leave your bins out on the boundary of your property by 6am or the night before where possible. If your collection is missed, please be patient while we work to complete collections as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Covid-19 Guidelines

In order to prevent further spread of Covid-19, households that are self-isolating and showing the symptoms of the virus should follow the UK Government's 'Stay at home' advice and ensure:

  • Personal waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths are securely disposed in rubbish bags, and not in paper or card recycling.
  • Any bags containing personal waste should be double bagged, tied securely and kept separate from other waste.
  • Bags containing personal waste are to be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in the usual external general waste bin.
