Blue bins (recycling)

If your bin hasn't been emptied

Bin collections

  • Please put out your grey household waste bin every day.

There are a number of reasons why your bin may not have been emptied:

Contamination

Yellow tape will be left on your blue bin if it contains items that are not recyclable.

You will be asked to check your waste and to remove any items which are not allowed in your blue recycling bin. 

Your bin will not be emptied until the offending items have all been removed, and you will have to wait until your next collection day.

Timing or location

Bins must be placed outside on the edge of your property where it is easily visible and accessible to the collection crew before 7.30am.

Wrong bin

Unfortunately, we can only empty the correct colour bin on collection day. Find out your bin collection dates.
