The mobile garbage bin (MGB) system has proved over many years to be the most efficient and effective method of waste collection and its extension into recycling is a logical and practical extension of this technology.
The MGB based co-mingled recycling service was selected because it offered convenient and effective storage of recycable materials in a collection format familiar to residents.
Your bin is collected every second Wednesday and must be placed o.5m from the verge by 7am. If you have a second bin please place 1 metre apart.
All recyclables are simply placed in the recycling bin.
What NOT to put in your recycling bin -
No plastic bags, plastic film or shrink wrap
No polystyrene goods (eg meat trays and packaging)
No ceramics, window glass, light globes, mirros or broken glass
No garden waste of any sort
No household garbage, food scraps or food wrappings
No scrap metal
No unwanted paint or paint tins
No clothing or leather
No oil, acid or chemicals
No liquid of any kind
No building rubble
No animal waste or kitty litter
Other recycling services
