Waste and Recycling
The Council currently collects
approximately 44,120 tonnes of domestic waste each year from the
49,647 households within the District. We employ a team of workers
and vehicles to collect this waste. Please ensure that your
wheeled bin is put out for collection by 06.00am on
the morning of collection, and contain all your refuse within the
wheeled bin with the lid in the closed position.
The team normally works on Bank Holidays and your
bin should be put out for collection as normal, the only
exception being during the Christmas and New Year period where a
separate collection programme is in operation. This operation
showing the changes will be published on our website each
year. To find out your bin collection day please visit
My Area and either enter the first line of your address
including house number or postcode.
Currently 49,647 households have been provided with a second
blue wheeled bin for the collection of recyclable materials to
reduce the amount of waste we take to landfill. Known as our 'Twin
Bin' scheme, one bin is collected each week on an alternating basis
and by providing almost every household with a second blue wheeled
bin, has enabled us to reach a recycling rate of almost
24% during 2008.
To further assist our residents to recycle we
also provide in excess of 50 recycling "Bring Sites" throughout the
District where other recyclable materials such as glass and
textiles, which we do not collect in the 'Blue' bin can be
The refuse service affects all our residents,
many of whom believe this is the main service they pay their
Council Tax for.
In reality, however, the service only costs each
householder about 74 pence per week.
The Council also provides, if required, a free
collection of Clinical Waste for residents from domestic premises
only and can offer assisted collections of wheeled bins for
the elderly/disabled. If you wish to request any of
these services please contact us on 01909 534501.
The responsibility for the disposal of household
waste is with Nottinghamshire County Council who work in close
consultation with ourselves to provide suitable disposal
arrangements for the materials we collect.
