Important information:

  • place your clear polythene bag on your purple top bin for collection
    • please do not tie the bag to the bin lid
  • do not put any textiles in charity bags, we are not able to take these as they become the property of the charity, you can use clear sacks, carrier bags or bin liners, do not use black sacks as this is associated with refuse and if the crew can't see what has been presented, they will not be able to take the additional bags.
