Now, Recycle Small Electrical and Electronic Items

Do you have  small waste electric and electronic items, reusable textiles and household batteries? These are now to be collected by alongside usual waste and recycling collections.

To ensure their collection, place the items inside a supermarket type carrier bag and leave them by your wheelie bins on their usual day of collection. The collection crews will apply a sticker informing the resident of any item that cannot be accepted.
