Kerbside Collection

Kerbside Collection

The new arrangements for Kerbside collection in the autumn include the introduction of a Kerbside Sort Recycling Collection Service. This will see an increase in the range of recycling you can present at the kerbside including: plastic pots, tubs and trays, Tetra Pak, food and beverage cartons and household batteries, in line with those that can now be disposed of at the waste and recycling centres. The aim of these changes is to boost the amount of recycling across the County, reducing the amount you place in your residual (non-recyclable) waste bags.

These changes will result in an estimated 75% of all household waste being collected on a weekly or fortnightly basis from people’s homes, inclusive of recyclables, green waste and absorbent hygiene products.

You will receive further information by post about the changes to your collection and your recycling receptacles later this summer. Keep up-to-date here.
