Rubbish, garden waste, clinical and bulky waste collections are NOT affected.

Lots to go? Flatten/tear up card; rinse, quash and put tops back on plastic bottles; rinse and – if safe – crush cans. Stack boxes, heavier above, locked food bin on top.

Extra material can be carefully sorted into bags (not black sacks) beside your recycling, or store and put out over time.

If materials cannot be stored or present a health or fire risk, recyclesites – on usual schedules for essential visits – can take kerbside materials for recycling.

The only exception is food waste, which should be double bagged and put in your rubbish, or added to the energy-from-waste skip at any recycling site.

All recycle site details, including essential safety measures:
