Non-recyclable refuse collection

Every other week we will collect your refuse which could include:

  • waste items not included in your recycling service
  • pet waste (please double-bag)
  • disposable nappies and incontinence pads (please double-bag)
  • plastic-film
  • plastic bags
  • plastic toys
  • polystyrene (cups and trays)
  • ash and Vacuum bags and dust
  • glass - please wrap carefully
  • cooking oil and fat* (please place in a sealed container and cool)

Please don't put these in your refuse:

  • any materials we can recycle
  • garden waste
  • large bulky items
  • construction and demolition waste

In your non-recyclable refuse collection, please ensure that this waste is securely contained and left out for collection in the normal way. If you do use a wheelie bin to store your waste, please use standard size refuse sacks. We do not provide containers for non-recyclable refuse.

*Oils and fats may create blockages if disposed of in the kitchen sink. 

Residents should be aware that there is no limit to the number of household waste containers you use. We supply containers for all recycling collections but residents are expected to provide their own containers for non-recyclable refuse.
