In order to support residents who have requested a street party to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee we would like to ask all organisers to check whether the road closure will take place on the same day as your scheduled waste collection.
If it is, we will delay the bin collection until the next working day. This will enable us to take your additional waste and recycling away for you.

Please note that the following items can be recycled in your green wheeled bins, once they are full please bag up all additional recycling material in clear sacks or make it obvious to our crews that it is recycling and place it next to your green bins.
Recycling – green bin:
Clean paper plates, napkins or table cloths
Plastic bottles and jars, margarine tubs, yoghurt pots and plastic food trays

Waste – brown bin:
Please don’t put used paper plates, cups, napkins or table cloths in the recycling if they are contaminated with food. Unfortunately, these items will need to go in the brown bin.
Other items that will need to go in your brown bin include all general food waste, hard plastics including plastic cutlery, plastic cups, polythene, polystyrene, party poppers and other party items.
If you have more waste than your brown bins can hold we will take extra away for you on this occasion, but please make sure you put all additional waste in black sacks next to your brown bins.
