Public Consultation - Waste and Recycling Collections 

We've launched a consultation to get the views of residents on how the council should collect recycling, black sack, and bulky waste. 

The consultation is to understand how residents currently use our waste services, and to gauge the level of support for any changes in the future - such as introducing a wheeled bin for non-recyclable waste instead of our current method of using black sacks.

If you live in the borough, please take ten minutes and share your views as part of our consultation at: Waste collections online consultation
