Recycling collection

Boxes are now back in stock for collection and delivery.

Apologies if you are awaiting delivery. We will get them out to you as soon as possible as we clear the backlog and we are hoping to have this complete by Friday 30 July.

Please note that there is up to 15 day wait for delivery, once you place your order.

 Boxes can be collected from Ley Street Depot - Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 10am and 12pm ONLY. Boxes will not be given out outside of those periods. 

We are also currently looking at other areas in the borough where boxes can be collected from. We will update this page accordingly when we have more information.

Check your collection day

We offer kerbside recycling collection on the same day as your normal bin collection.
