Hard Waste

Other hard waste and recycling options

You can now recycle food waste alongside garden waste in our food and green waste bins.

Before putting your items out for collection, consider other ways you can repair, reuse or recycle items. If your items are in good condition, or need minor repairs, it's best to find a new home for them first. By doing this, you're reducing valuable resources going to landfill and supporting a community of reuse.
