Household rubbish

Household rubbish is emptied fortnightly from grey wheeled bins (alternating with recycling collections) and taken to an energy from waste facility.

If you have sack collections because you are unable to store a wheelie bin at your property your household rubbish will be collected weekly.

Please ensure that your wheelie bin lid shuts fully and that it is put by the kerbside by 6am on your collection day. For legal and safety reasons, bins must be removed from public paths as soon as possible after collection.

Excess rubbish

We do not collect excess household rubbish in addition to the standard refuse bins. If you have excess waste please take it to Dix Pit Household Waste and Recycling Centres.

Nappies

Disposable nappies take up a huge amount of space in your bin. Reusable nappies are environmentally friendly and can save you money. You can also 'try before you buy'. For more information visit:

If you do use disposable nappies, please try to flush solid soil down the toilet and tightly wrap the nappies into a small bundle before putting them into the bin.

What happens to your rubbish

Waste collected in the grey refuse bins is taken to the Ardley Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) for processing.
