Find out more about the rubbish and recycling collections we offer and how to organize your rubbish.
Most homes have a green bin for their household rubbish. Depending on the recycling service you have this bin will either be collected once a week or once every two weeks, on the same weekday.
Items such as small electrical items or Foil lined food cartons such as milk cartons or Pringles tubs should be put into your green bin or taken to a local recycling point.
