Littering and litter bins

Litter bins

We empty street litter bins around the borough on a 10 working-day schedule.

You can use street litter bins to dispose of dog waste if the waste has been tied in a plastic bag.

Recycling on the move

Don't forget that you can recycle whilst on the move. We have installed dual recycling and litter bins in a number of different locations in the borough.

In the blue side of the bin the following items can be deposited for recycling:

  • drink cans
  • glass bottles
  • plastic bottles
  • clean paper, newspapers and magazines

The black side is for other waste such as:

  • crisp packets
  • wrappers
  • cigarettes
  • chewing gum
  • sandwich packets
  • dog waste in tied plastic bags

Please use these bins to recycle whenever you see them.
