Plastics (green bin or green bag)
When collections take place. Which plastics can be put in your green bin or green bag. Report a missed collection. Request a new green bin or green bag.
Please note: Glass and cans are collected every 3 weeks mixed in with plastics. If you are still using the box, bag and sack collection, please ensure your green bag and blue box are presented together at the kerbside for collection. Please note that cardboard-lined cartons (Tetra-paks) can be recycled using the blue bin or white sack.

Top tip: Giving plastic bottles and milk cartons a quick rinse with warm water can make them easier to squash which will save space in your green bag/bin.
What to do on collection day
Please place your green bin or green bag on the kerbside for 7am. Recycling containers should be placed next to your brown bin and should be removed from the kerbside as soon as practical but no later than 24 hours following collection.
