Black bins - household waste

On collection day, place your black bin at the edge of your property where it joins the footpath or road, closest to where the refuse vehicle passes.

The black bin must be placed out for collection by 7am on your day of collection.  We cannot guarantee your collection will take place at the same time every fortnight.

Black bins should be placed out for collection on the alternative week to your green recycling bags/blue bin, and brown bin.

  • Grass cuttings, leaves and shrub/bush trimmings

  • Windfall fruit

  • Hedge trimmings
