Waste changes effective this week

From 3rd February 2019 the method of charging householders for domestic refuse will change when householders will be required to attach a prepaid, refuse charge sticker to every bag of “black bag” refuse put out for collection – £1.40 for 50 litre bags and £2.50 for 90 litre bags.

NB – There is no restriction on the number of black bags which you can put out on “black bag nights” provided that an appropriate sticker is attached to each bag, but stickers will not be required on recycling bags.
