Household refuse and recycling collections

Household refuse (general rubbish) and recycling are collected on an alternate week schedule.

This means that your refuse will be collected one week and your recycling the next.

After a public holiday, collections will be a day later than usual.

Check what should go in your refuse and recycling bins

If a bin contains unacceptable items, it will not be emptied.

Please ensure that your bin is out by 6:30am on your collection day and you follow our bin collection advice.
