Most residents have a grey wheeled bin for landfill waste, a green garden waste wheeled bin and 3 separate recycle boxes. A small number of properties do still use their own black bags, if you do not have a wheeled bin and need to know more about the provision of black bin bags, please read the guidance pages.
Kerbside recycling collections are provided by the council or our partners Friends of St Nicholas Fields, who collect within the city walls.
To find out about collection of household waste, garden waste and your recycling service, please use the links on the left.
Please note that in 2013 some changes and charges were made to Waste Services. This now means that new / replacement bins and containers are now chargeable. Only when your bin has been lost or damaged by the council will we replace them free of charge. A wheeled bin will now cost from £35 and recycling boxes will be charged at £5 per box. Lids and nets will be remain free of charge.
Your Bin, box or bags MUST be out for collection between 7pm the night before your collection and 7am the day of collection to ensure they are not missed
Bank Holiday collections
There are no changes to your normal refuse, recycling or garden waste collections on any Bank Holidays in 2014 (with the exception of Christmas and New Year). We will collect your waste as normal on Good Friday, Easter Monday and the other Bank Holidays during the spring and summer.
