Recycling and Waste

We're asking for your help to improve the quality of our garden waste. Please think 'If it doesn't grow, it's not coming in' and only place compostable items from the garden into your green bin/re-useable sack.

Recycling cardboard

Cardboard must now go into your green recycling bag for a weekly collection - our crews will no longer collect cardboard from garden waste bin / sacks from the 28th August 2017.

We know there are green bins within the City that say cardboard is accepted - if you'd like a new sticker for your bin please contact us​.

Shredded paper

Shredded paper should be recycled in a green recycling bag for a weekly collection. Put your shredded paper into a separate green bag, and not mixed in with your other items.
