Recycling for flats
Recycling in blocks of flats
If you live in a block of flats, recycling and waste collections are provided using large shared bins located either in the communal bin store or in the grounds close to the flats. Large blue bins are provided for mixed dry recycling. Large silver or black bins are provided for general waste, or you may have a chute system. We only able to offer separate food recycling waste collection to blocks of flats with internal storage that residents can access.
Recycling and waste collection in flats above another property (such as a shop)
We provide a sack collection service if you live in flat that does not have any room to store bins. Please only put sacks out on the designated day of collection. To avoid the sacks being split open by animals, don't put them outside the night before.
We provide free clear sack for mixed dry recycling. Please click here to find out what can be recycled.
Please leave your clear sacks out for collection by 6:00am on your designated collection day.
Food and garden waste in flats above another property
Unfortunately, food and garden waste (green service) collections are generally not available to flats above another property.
General waste in flats above another property
You will need to buy your own black sacks for general waste. These sacks should be put out for collection by 11:00am on your designated day of collection. To avoid sacks being torn open, please do not put black sacks out overnight.
