Overflowing bins

We may not be able to recycle excess recycling left by the recycling bins.

Please contact us if your recycling bins overflow regularly, as we may be able to provide additional recycling bins

What can't you put in the communal recycling bins?

We only collect the materials listed above. In particular we cannot accept household waste, plastic bags, crisp packets, cling film, cellophane, nappies, window glass and drinking glasses.

It is important that you do not put materials that we cannot accept for recycling in the recycling bins. We will not be able to empty the recycling bins if there are materials that we cannot collect and we may have to send the entire load to landfill.
