Refuse & Recycling

Household recycling and bin collections

Every household has regular collections for recycling and general rubbish.
To find out what night your collection is click the button to visit the My Bin Night section of the website.

Householders are required to attach a prepaid, refuse charge sticker to every bag of “black bag” refuse put out for collection:
£1.62 for 50 litre bags and £2.92 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.

The envelope you received your “what goes where wheel” in tells you whether your waste will all be collected on a Tuesday or Wednesday night.

  • If it is a clear bag week you will also need to put out your food waste and black bag
  • If it is a blue bag week you will also need to put out your food waste and your glass.

Please contact us as soon as you can if there is a problem, preferably before midday following a collection time.

You can collect recycling bag vouchers from the Douzaine Office during opening hours.
