Residents in pre-selected trial areas are recycling plastic bottles and cardboard in addition to the materials being collected in other areas. Residents have been given two reusable bags – one green and one blue.
The blue bag is for paper and cardboard and the green one for plastic bottles along with food and drink cans. Black boxes are used for glass bottles and jars only.
This service will be rolled out to all our borough residents by the end of 2014 as part of our improvements to recycling and rubbish collections.

A list of all the streets within the trial areas is attached at the bottom of the page, or alternatively you can carry out a street search to see if you’re in one of the areas. A list of frequently asked questions is also attached at the bottom of the page.
