Live in a Wheelie Bin Area?

Please note that a garden waste collection from white sacks is not available to residents in wheelie bin areas.

Brown wheelie bins for garden waste have been provided to residents within the wheelie bin collection areas. If you live in one of these areas and don’t have a brown wheelie bin, please contact us

If you are new to the borough, you can check if you are in a wheelie bin area here.
