Rubbish & recycling
Frequently Asked Questions
If you live in a flat there is likely to be communal refuse facilities. Please dispose of rubbish in suitable refuse bags in the bins provided.
Bulky items should not be left in the bin store and you must dispose of them yourself. Most Councils provide a free or low-cost collection service for unwanted household items such as fridges, mattress and wardrobes etc. Alternatively, you could offer them to a local furniture charity, on free sites like freecycle or dispose of them at your nearest recycling centre.
Dumping rubbish is classed as anti-social behaviour. Legal action can be taken against anyone who does it. If you see anyone dumping rubbish please let us know, so that we can try to identify the person who left the rubbish and charge them for the cost of the removal.
Please ensure you follow the guidance from your local authority regarding which items you can recycle.
