We regret that immediate return collections are not possible; please re-present recycling next Monday, 1 March, from 6am.

Rubbish, garden waste, clinical and bulky waste collections are NOT affected.

For more recycling space, flatten and tear up card; rinse, quash and put tops back on plastic bottles; rinse and – if safe – crush cans. Stack boxes with heavier above and locked food bin on top.

If materials cannot be stored or would present a health or fire risk, all recycle sites are on their usual schedules for essential visits only, and can take all kerbside materials for recycling.

The only exception is food waste, which should be double bagged and put in your rubbish, or added to the energy-from-waste skip at any recycle site.
