Black general rubbish sacks

If your property is unsuitable for a wheelie a bin, you can use black refuse sacks instead, however you will need to purchase these. We will collect them as normal every fortnight on a general rubbish collection day. We will take up to a maximum four bags at a time, any more will be left.

Why only black bags for rubbish?

Because these are easy for our crews to identify and recognise as general rubbish. Other colours are used for other types of waste, such as business waste or garden waste.

Please don't use small bin liners or carrier bags for your rubbish. Refuse sacks must be strong enough to carry from your property and be thrown into the collection vehicle without splitting.

Manage your rubbish responsibly

While our collection crews will clear up spills immediately around the collection point, please help them by making sure the sacks you put out are tied securely, and not split or overfilled.

Please do not use green garden sacks or clear recycling sacks for general rubbish, as we will not be able to take them away.

Keep your sacks tidy

To help keep your black sacks tidy and out of the way, you can request a bin from us to store these in. You will need to ensure sacks are taken out of this and put out ready for collection. We do not provide recycling bins for storage of recycling sacks.
