Properties that cannot accommodate wheeled bins or our vehicles are unable to access, will have a weekly collection of sacks.

In order to help us prevent litter and scavenging animals, if you do not have wheeled bins please ensure that you always use a seagull-proof refuse sack when you put out your sacks for collection.

Reusable seagull-proof refuse sacks are available free of charge, to properties that aren't suitable for wheeled bins. To order one please contact us on 01253 477477.

You can help our collection crews by only placing bagged waste into the seagull-proof sacks and by ensuring that it will be easy to lift the bags out of the sack without needing to untie the handles.

Please bring your seagull-proof sack back inside as soon after your collection as possible. We would advise you to mark your property name or number on the bag to help you identify it.
