We’re sorry if your recycling bin wasn’t emptied when collections were suspended for 14 days in July and August. We will return on your next scheduled collection day. Please put your bin out on your normal collection date.

If you’ve already done this, our advice is to put your recycling in your household waste bin until your recycling bin is emptied. Household waste is used to generate electricity at the energy from waste plant. Hardly any goes to landfill.
