Recycling Bin -
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.
