General Refuse Collection Information
How do I present my Bin?
- At the edge of your property or a previously agreed point
Out by 7.00 am on the day of collection
With the lid fully closed
Black Bin with no side waste ( this will not be taken)
Blue Bin extra recycling which will not fit in your blue bin will be taken if neatly placed at the side if your blue bin.
What if I forget to put my bin out?
- If your bin is not out it will not be collected. You will normally have to wait until the next due collection. In exceptional circumstances we may return as a one off.
Why does my Lid have to be closed ?
- Your bin lid has to be closed for the safety of the collectors. it also helps keep flies and other creatures out of the bin. For more advice on how to manage your waste please read our advice leaflet
Why can't I present side waste?
- If you recycle everything you can using the recycling collections and facilities available, you should not create side waste on a regular basis. There is however an exception to this rule. Although we will not take extra bags on green and black collections the crews will remove all material for recycling even if it is not contained in the wheeled bin. Cardboard should be folded and placed at the side of the bin. If residents have more paper than will fit in the caddy then carrier bags of paper placed at the side of the blue bin on collection day will be removed. If you have extra bags of black or green waste you can take them to a Household Waste Recycling Centre. There are two in the area; one on Sheffield Road Stonegravels and one on Buttermilk lane Bolsover.
