  • Put ALL PPE, face coverings and disposable cleaning cloths in to a black bag(s) or bagged inside a wheelie bin.

What happens if I exceed my allowance?

Any additional waste will not be collected and residents are likely to receive a visit from the Council's Enforcement Officers. 

Those residents who choose to repeatedly refuse to recycle or ignore advice and warnings from Enforcement Officers will as a last resort be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice of £100.

You can contact the Council for advice to help you to reduce your black bag waste and increase recycling, alternatively use the search below to identify which bin or bag your waste goes in.
