Recycling and rubbish
Collections for flats
Recycling is everyone’s responsibility and if you live in a flat or multiple occupancy dwelling, you can still do your bit to boost recycling in the district.
Many flats in the district now have access to communal recycling bins.
The recycling containers have been labelled providing you with a guide as to which materials should be placed in each of the containers.
Red lidded wheeled bin:
- Clean paper and card
- Drink and food cans / tins
- Foil and aerosols
- Specified plastic packaging
- Food and drink cartons (eg Tetra Paks)
Yellow lidded wheeled bin:
- Glass bottles and jars only
Green lidded food waste wheeled bin:
- Food waste only
No recycling wheeled bins at your block?
In order to recycle even more we are looking to install colour coded recycling bins at all suitable flats and other multiple occupancy dwellings within the district.
As every block of flats is different, we cannot locate recycling containers at flats without a site visit. This is to ensure that there is adequate space and that the bins are located in a suitable place for residents and the collection crews.
If you live in a flat and do not yet have specific containers for recycling, please ask your Managing Agents or Residents Committee to contact us to arrange a site visit.

You can still recycle by using the clear recycling sacks. These can be left alongside your communal refuse wheeled bins.
