What about my green waste?
At the minute we don't offer a green waste collection service, however we do encourage people, where possible, to compost their green waste as it produces excellent compost.
The recycling centres provide large bins with separate compartments for glass bottles and jars, newspapers and magazines, food and drink cans, and aluminium foil and containers.
