Where and when to put bins out:

  • make sure all rubbish or recycling is placed inside the correct container
  • make sure the lid is closed on your black wheelie bin
  • if you have forgotten to put your recycling or bin out for collection, put them out on your next collection date
  • put bins and recycling boxes out by 7am. They should be at the edge of your property and visible from the road
  • take your bin off the highway as soon as possible after the collection
