For trouble free bin emptying, please ensure:

  1. All bins are out at the edge of your property by 6am on collection day. Sometimes we have to change the collection order and the crew may arrive earlier or later than your usual time.

  2. Bin lids are closed and no extra waste is left at the side of the bin. We do not take any extra waste from black or brown bins.

  3. That your brown bin, green bin and its black caddy contain only the materials on our wanted list. We can only recycle these materials and the crew are not allowed to sort through bins to remove unwanted items.
