Right stuff in the Right bin

We spend over £2.5million per annum on landfilling waste. Help us to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill.

Use your blue bin to recycle.

Metal Matters

Put just 2 extra cans into your recycling and you’ll save enough energy to run a computer for up to 12 hours.

You can pop them in your blue bin..


We won't collect bins with the wrong stuff in them. We'll put a red tag on your bin to tell you why your bin has not been emptied.

Use your brown bin to recycle organic waste.
