Collection

We collect the green recycling boxes every two weeks. You can check your collection dates by entering your postcode or address.

If you are recycling clothes or shoes, you need to put them in a tied carrier bag and leave them outside your green recycling box.

You also need to put our small electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) in a tied carrier bag, and leave it outside your green recycling box.


Replacement box

You can order a new green recycling box online if yours is missing or damaged.

Our green boxes do not come with a lid, as they have holes in the bottom to let out rainwater. If your box originally had one, we will not replace it.
