Reducing my waste


As the Coronavirus situation continues to develop, the decision has been taken to cancel the annual ‘compost giveaway’.
This is in line with all other Local Authorities that organise these events. If possible, we will re-arrange for later in the year.

Recycling, composting and reducing your waste is easy and can make a big difference to the environment. There are lots of ways we can all play our part.

About reducing waste and what you can do

There’s lots of information about recycling, reducing waste and how you can be involved in your local area on the Recycle Now website.
