Using your black wheelie bin

  • We’ll collect either the contents of one closed wheelie bin, or three waste sacks if you are not able to have a wheelie bin
  • Put your black wheelie bin out for collection by 6am on your collection day
  • Make sure the bin is at the edge of your property, where the waste collection team can see it from the road
  • Make sure your bin lid is closed
  • Put nappies and pads in a bag before you put them in your bin
  • Don’t put out any extra rubbish bags for collection
  • If your bin is too heavy to be wheeled to the back of our collection vehicle then we can’t empty it
  • Take your bin off the highway as soon as possible after the collection
  • Keep coronavirus waste separate to other waste for 72 hours before putting it in your black wheelie bin
