Make sure your pink sack is securely tied up and placed outside your property by 7.30am on the day of collection.
There is no limit to the number of pink sacks that can be put out for each collection but remember to rinse out all plastic containers, and crush them, before placing them into the sack.
Please wrap sharp items and dispose of any needles in a safe and responsible manner through a needle exchange or via your local health centre.
If you are unable to get waste and recycling to your collection point, please contact our customer services to check if you're eligible for assisted collections. This service is available to anyone experiencing difficulties due to an impairment.
Generally, all household domestic food and drink packaging can be recycled in the pink sack providing that it is clean of any food.
