Household Waste and Recycling

  • We are still one of the few Councils that are continuing to collect household waste and recycling weekly. On this basis, we consider a 140 litre wheeled bin will be sufficient for the majority of households as this represents a greater capacity than the previous 3 bag allowance of 120 litres.
  • Waste can be put loose into your bin to increase capacity. Food waste may be bagged or wrapped in newspaper before placing it into the bin.
  • Any requests for a larger bin will be assessed on an individual household needs basis. Contact Customer Services on 0116 288 8961 for more details.
