Kerbside refuse and recycling bag collection service

Households who do not have a storage area for wheeled bins can request to use the kerbside refuse and recycling bag service. Please call Wasteline for more details. This is also provided in areas our standard collection vehicles cannot access.

This service is available for refuse and recycling (not including food waste).

Blue bags for Refuse

A household may present up to five refuse bags for collection each fortnight at the kerbside on their collection day. Only the blue bags that are allocated by the Council may be used. Any other type of bag put out will not be collected.

Clear bags for recycling

Clear bags for recycling are supplied free of charge by the council.

Food Waste

Food waste is only collected from food bins – there is no ‘bag alternative’. Most people can fit a food bin in their household.
