Recycling and rubbish collections

Recycling and rubbish collections will start daily at 6am from now on due to the high temperatures.

Please ensure your bins and boxes are all out in time for the early start (and no earlier than the night before), and note that some collections times may change.

The new start time will continue until cooler weather returns.

To help crews collect your waste, please:

* Sort and roughly segregate materials in boxes without using carrier bags.
* Rinse all containers and squash all but glass and aerosols.
* Cut up all large card and flatten all cardboard boxes.

Crews have been reminded to keep the noise down; apologies in advance for the sound of glass and cans.
