Flats

Recycling

If you live in a flat you will either have access to a shared blue recycling bin or we will give you clear recycling sacks. Both are for:

  • cardboard
  • paper
  • magazines or newspapers
  • telephone directories
  • envelopes, junk mail and paper
  • glass bottles and jars
  • metal food and drink cans
  • clean metal foil
  • plastic bottles, pots, tubs, trays and carrier bags

Please note that black sacks placed in shared recycling bins will be considered general waste and will not be collected.

Flats with shared recycling bins will not receive a delivery of clear sacks but can collect packs from local libraries. If you do not have a shared blue recycling bin, we will deliver a new roll of clear recycling sacks every 13 weeks. Additional reusable and clear recycling bags can be ordered online or collected from one of our Libraries or Community Hubs.

Food and garden waste

We don’t provide food and garden waste services for flats. We recommend that food waste is placed in your black rubbish sacks.

Rubbish

General rubbish should be placed into a shared bin provided by the flat’s management company. All non-recyclable rubbish (including disposable nappies) should go into rubbish bags.

If you do not have access to a shared bin, please place your rubbish into black bags for kerbside collection.
