We provide a range of services to manage waste within our area. The services provide a way for people to easily dispose of their rubbish. This ensures we can protect the community and the environment we live in.
We manage waste in a number of ways by:
- kerbside collection of household waste
- kerbside collection for business waste
- providing litter bins in parks and other public places
- operation of the Bucketts Way Waste Management Facility
We aim to minimise the amount of waste that is put into landfill. Sixty percent of all waste we collect is reused or recycled. This means that out of 5,500 truckloads of waste collected each year, more than 3,000 truckloads are recycled or reused.
To further improve on this we need your help. By continuing to sort and separate your waste we can increase the amount that is recycled and reused. This will increase the life of our landfill and reduce costs for everyone.
